=head1 ENVIRONMENT

The working of B<userdel> is not influenced by any environment variabl
+es.

=head1 BUGS

B<userdel> isn't as nice as I would like, but Win32 isn't Unix, now is
+ it?  This I<really> doesn't like Samba domain controllers, which is 
+why I added the 'unknown' entry in the output.

Samba causes problems, which is why an entry might return "unknown".

=head1 STANDARDS

It does not make sense to talk about standards in a B<userdel> manual 
+page.
