cpu - A tool for user and group administration
CPU is a tool for user administration, that was initially based on
FreeBSD’s pw(8). This tool will allow you to administer users and
groups on several different backends currently including LDAP and flat
files. Please see the website http://cpu.sourceforge.net for more
information, or help improve the man page.
There are two kinds of options; options for CPU and options for CPU
modules. There are only four options for CPU, they are as follows:
-C configfile, --config configfile
The configuration file to be used by CPU. The options in this
file are used for CPU modules.
Display help for CPU. If specified in conjunction with the -m
option the help for that particular module is displayed.
-M method, --method=method
This is the method of administration. Current options are ldap
or passwd (passwd is not yet working). This can be specified in
the configuration file.
