Password expiration warning.


Anyone know the command which identifies how long a user has before their password expires?

I also need to know how I would write and expr to calculate the difference between 2 dates.

e.g. 28/03/05 - 18/03/05 = 10

I was told there is a date function which shows you no of days since the day dot (Julian Calender?), is this true as I can't see it in the man pages.

This would be a great help.

Try "passwd -s". Date arithmetic is covered in our FAQ section.
