add users to linux without using useradd!!

Posted 06-15-2011 at 03:21 PM by bsl4ever

Hi all,

do you guys know how to add a user to a linux box without using useradd?
I'm working on a project to disect the process of adding users, but can't use useradd command.
I know this involves modifying couple of files such as /etc/passwd, /etc/groups, etc..
but i'm sure there is more to it.
I couldn't find useradd source code which would answered this question.

Thanks.
