wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
Greetings, wise monks...
Has anybody used Unix::PasswdFile to change either the password or the shell of a user? According to the documentation it can do both, and in my system (Perl 5.6/Solaris 9/Sparc) doesnt complain at all when executing the following example:
...but it just doesnt change the password.
Where can i look for clues? When i run it through the debugger it doesnt show anything unusual.
Any log i can peruse? Any alternatives?
Thanks in advance,
