Deleting Users


As newbie as it may seem, I'm on CentOS, and I created a user that I didn't really want. I've tried the rmuser command, but it's not found. Is there another way that I can remove users in CentOS Bash?


Thanks

Code:
man userdel
if it's not in your path, you might try to use
Code:
/sbin/userdel
instead (or see if it's in /usr/sbin/ for example). Some distributions don't add sbin/ directories to regular users' $PATH by default.
