Apending a list of users to a file

Hi guys,

As part of my UNIx homework, I have created a file named dir_listing, which is based within directories. This file already contains the root directory root_dir. I am now required to append a list of users to dir_listing.
i can obtain the list by simply typing users, but how would I append this list to dir_listing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
