......

and one more thing, how can I edit my profile file so that I dont have to put ./ in front of my script files??? I mean, how do I make it possible to just type the script file name and then have the system run the file right away

edit your profile file and add the "." to the PATH

PATH=$PATH:.
export $PATH

(but it's insecure).
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
If you want to copy especific configuration files when you add
a new user, in some unix you have a skeleton directory (for
example in Solaris is /etc/skel _see useradd man page_) and when you create a new user those files are copied to the home directory (see the apropiate man page of user creation in your unix flavor).

---------------------------
1- create a dir and put into the files you wish to copy

2- create a copy script like copy.sh
Code:
for i in *
do
  if [ "$i" != "copy.sh" ]
  then
     cut -d: -f6 /etc/passwd |sort -u |while read dir
     do
        if [ ! -f $dir/$i ]
        then
           echo "cp -p $i $dir"
        fi
     done
   fi
done

3- chmod 0750 copy.sh

./copy.sh

4- if the script display that you wish to do, replace the line
echo "cp -p $i $dir"
for the line
cp -p $i $dir

In the previus reply I remember the Common phrase:
make what I say but no what I make.

INTRO(9)						   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual						  INTRO(9)

NAME
intro -- introduction to system kernel interfaces DESCRIPTION
This section contains information about the interfaces and subroutines in the kernel. PROTOTYPES ANSI-C AND ALL THAT Yes please. We would like all code to be fully prototyped. If your code compiles cleanly with cc -Wall we would feel happy about it. It is important to understand that this is not a question of just shutting up cc, it is a question about avoiding the things it complains about. To put it bluntly, do not hide the problem by casting and other obfuscating practices, solve the problem. INDENTATION AND STYLE
Believe it or not, there actually exists a guide for indentation and style. It is not generally applied though. We would appreciate if people would pay attention to it, and at least not violate it blatantly. We do not mind it too badly if you have your own style, but please make sure we can read it too. Please take time to read style(9) for more information. NAMING THINGS
Some general rules exist: 1. If a function is meant as a debugging aid in DDB, it should be enclosed in #ifdef DDB #endif /* DDB */ And the name of the procedure should start with the prefix DDB_ to clearly identify the procedure as a debugger routine. SCOPE OF SYMBOLS
It is important to carefully consider the scope of symbols in the kernel. The default is to make everything static, unless some reason requires the opposite. There are several reasons for this policy, the main one is that the kernel is one monolithic name-space, and pollution is not a good idea here either. For device drivers and other modules that do not add new internal interfaces to the kernel, the entire source should be in one file if possi- ble. That way all symbols can be made static. If for some reason a module is split over multiple source files, then try to split the module along some major fault-line and consider using the number of global symbols as your guide. The fewer the better. SEE ALSO
