my ($VERSION) = '$Revision: 1.0 $' =~ /([.\d]+)/;

my $warnings = 0;

# Print a usuage message on a unknown option.

$SIG {__WARN__} = sub {
    if (substr ($_ [0], 0, 14) eq "Unknown option") {die "Usage"};

I did not bother to work on the formatting of the output beyond a tab

    Just as a question: The code you provide works perfectly, however is there any way to return only a single user from the list being returned? I have an issue that I keep getting service accounts listed, while I am concerned only with the last one, which is normally a user account. Any help would be appreciated.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
