Re: printing out users without home directories

in reply to printing out users without home directories

This allows me to put all users into an array called @passwd_entries. How do I print out all users without /home directories?

for(@passwd_entries) { print "/home/$_ does not exist\n" unless -d "/home/$_"; }
See -X and perlsyn.

(Fixed a couple of typos in updates.)

Cheers,
Rob

    for(@passwd_entries) { print "/home/$_ ...

    In the context of the code from the root node, that won't work, since $_ contains the entire line from the entry.

      Yes, the wording of the OP's initial post led me to believe that his @passwd_entries contained nothing but a list of the usernames - though, of course, the OP didn't exactly specify that was the case.
