Question Setting disk quotas in a script

I know how to use edquota at the console, but what about setting up disk quotas for a bunch of users at once?

I need to script the disk quota setting for a list of users (NOT an entire group, just select users) in a Bash script.

Pointers, please? Thanks.

Thumbs up

Thanks, ramram29!

That HOW-TO is even easier than the solution I found last night in the O'Reilly book, Perl for System Administrators.(1)

If anyone's interested, the book info is below.

(1) Section 2.5 Manipulating Disk Quotas, Chapter 2 - File Systems, Perl for System Administrators by David N. Blank-Edelman, ISBN 1-56592-609-9, First edition, published July 2000.
