bourne shell /etc/passwd /etc/shadow


#!/bin/sh

TEMPFILE1=/tmp/ehong.1.$$

IFS=":" ; export IFS
cat /cygdrive/h/etc/passwd | while read username passwd_placeholder userid groupid gecos home_dir shell; do
if [ $userid -gt 500 ] ; then
shadow_line=`grep "^$username:" /cygdrive/h/etc/shadow`
`echo $shadow_line | awk -F: '{ print $1":"$3":"$4":"$5":"$6 }' /cygdrive/h/etc/shadow` > $TEMPFILE1
fi
done

In the line:

`echo $shadow_line | awk -F: '{ print $1":"$3":"$4":"$5":"$6 }' /cygdrive/h/etc/shadow` > $TEMPFILE1

use

echo $shadow_line | awk -F: '{ print $1":"$3":"$4":"$5":"$6 }' /cygdrive/h/etc/shadow > $TEMPFILE1

Hope that helps ...
