Exclamation User automation Script

I have allot of users to input into a new system I've setup. I've written a script to automate pulling all the information from a computer generated file. I want the script to run without input from me of course.

I hit a snag at giving them a password you have to type the password out and verify the password. How do I script around this to make it where I dont have to input 800 Passwords * 2?

If I remember right theres a way to get around chpasswd taking the 2 standard keyboard inputs in one line of scripting. I just cant remember how!

Im searching as of now also so If I find it I will post it for others.

Thanks in advance.
