script questions

1) Write a script that takes two parameters and displays the addition of these two parameters on the screen.

2) Write a script that takes two parameters and displays the larger valued parameter on the screen.

3) Write a script that reads in three values and displays the greatest value and the average value.

2.4 Write a script/command to automatically send a message to all users currently running netscape that netscape will be killed. Make sure you also kill the netscape processes.

5.5 Write a script that reads a list of names and creates a user account for everyone on the list. You will have to think carefully about the usernames and their uniqueness. Remember, they need home directories.

5.6 Write a script that creates useful .profile files for each user. What other login initialization files are there? Why are they useful? Why are there different initialization files (e.g., .login, .cshrc).

5.7 Delete one of the user accounts you have created. Now disable a user account. Lock an account. What is the difference between deleted, disabled, locked and retired accounts? Why are there these differences?

5.9 Describe a captive account. Can you produce a captive account on your system?

6.4 Write a script that can be used to test the suitability of user passwords. The script should suggest (based on the initial user password suggestion given by a user) a suitable alternative if required. Describe why your suggested passwords are suitable.

7.5 Write a script that lowers the priority of all processes that exhibits more than 10% CPU usage. You should consider the Nice approach to process priority in your solution.

7.6 Change the script you developed in task 7.5 to actually kill the processes that exhibit more than 10% CPU usage

Hope someone can help me to answer those questions.
Just see what you guys can do .

Many thanks!

good grief, you could at least *try* to pretend it's a genuine question, and not homework. What's the point in cheating??

In some cases homework questions are ok to assist in getting you the right information to get the right answers but not answers directly is not looked upon in a good way.

I'm closing this thread, if you want the answers to your own homework, research and find the answers yourself, that's the point of homework, labs, etc.
