What Operating System and version do you have and what Shell do you use?

Please define "human users". It will vary from site-to-site.

Please define "have something in home". Phrase is meaningless.

Is this a dynamic enquiry about people currently using the system or a static enquiry about every possible user of the system.

Looks very much like unix introduction classwork to me...
In your last post you give clues on where to start :
Quote:
directory in home
Though not 100% but you could believe that users have a users directory in a common home directory... standards would be /home, /export/home (solaris) etc...

Please post the output from these commands, blotting the machine name with X's.


Code:
uname -a

echo "${SHELL}"

Linux drak 2.6.32-40-386 #87-Ubuntu SMP Mon Mar 5 23:03:22 UTC 2012 i686 GNU/Linux


I need to make a script which will list human users ( not computer ones ) from /etc/passwd and find out if their home directory is empty or not.
