Hi Folks,
   A few days (weeks) ago someone (Luke ?) mentioned an API that was the
correct way to address programmes that play with smbpasswd, I think.

   With about 300 users to add early next year, I just realised that my
system of adding bulk users does not work since the passwd command line
parameter was removed from the smbpasswd programme. Last year I hacked into
the programme itself but if there is a better way, what is it please ?

   I really don't want any interactive system, these are biology students
after all !
