Full Version: Writing shell script
Linuxhelp > Support > Programming in Linux
I am trying to write a script that creates users and adds them to groups.
The script to automate the creation of users is:
# Script to add a user to Linux system
if [ $(id -u) -eq 0 ]; then
read -p "Enter username : " username
read -s -p "Enter password : " password
egrep "^$username" /etc/passwd >/dev/null
if [ $? -eq 0 ]; then
echo "$username exists!"
exit 1
pass=$(perl -e 'print crypt($ARGV[0], "password")' $password)
useradd -m -p $pass $username
[ $? -eq 0 ] && echo "User has been added to system!" || echo "Failed to add a user!"
echo "Only root may add a user to the system"
exit 2

How could I modify this so that this shell script also additionally adds people to 2 specific groups?
You can add a menu.
