re: show all user account

you can also just do this:

more /etc/passwd


...you will find a lot of dorks that like to do things the hard way. However, if you want basics, just stick with using 'more /etc/passwd'.

The "hard" way is the correct way.

awk -F: '{ print $1 }' /etc/passwd shows, as the Original Poster requested, all user accounts.

more /etc/passwd just shows the entire passwd file, a superset of the required information.

Just a note too... with NIS
ypcat passwd | awk -F: '{print $1}'

Cheers
