Need Help on Scripting

Hi i'm new to unix scripting and need help on making a simple script that will

1. add a group of users from an input file

2. generate an appropriate report

3. provide help when users enter wrong and/or incomplete commands

Any one has a good knowledge about these things?

Don't post homework questions

Hackers are good at spotting homework questions; most of us have done them ourselves. Those questions are for you to work out, so that you will learn from the experience. It is OK to ask for hints, but not for entire solutions.

If you suspect you have been passed a homework question, but can't solve it anyway, try asking in a user group forum or (as a last resort) in a “user” list/forum of a project. While the hackers will spot it, some of the advanced users may at least give you a hint.
Hmm... LoL
