Red face adding users on fedora (linux)


HELP!!!! I need to do this project and I dont know where to start:
create accounts for each of these users (matt, rick,alex and Felix) putting each respective list in two groups, as indicated on the sheet tabs for each spreadsheet. Don't add them using the GUI interface utility or by inputting each account at the command line using “adduser”. You are to develop (or find, modify) and test a shell/perl/<insert your Favorite interpreted language> utility which allows you to batch load both lists.
HELP!!!

Sorry, we aren't here to do your work for you, that would be cheating. You need to refer to course notes, reference documentation etc...

Btw, normally people don't directly cut and paste from their assignment texts...
