 A Batch Job to Add New User IDs

O'Reilly brings us: A Batch Job to Add New User IDs.

"A common system administration task is to add new users. In large installations, such as central computing servers at universities or in large companies, adding users is often best performed as a "batch'' job, one that is automated with scripts. Consider, for example, the start of a new semester at a large public university, where there are hundreds, if not thousands, of new students. Creating accounts by hand would be impossible, so we need to automate the task."
