Greg --Exactly. Testparm checks smb.conf syntax, and the new program
outputs a more complete and parsable version of shares and their
parameters. The new program would answer questions like "what print command
does this print share think it has?", or "what's the directory mask of this
share?", or "which shares have bobby as a valid user?", simply by piping it
thru the proper grep.

Right now I'm busy writing a book, but if there's interest I'll contribute
it after I've had enough time to test it and clean up the code.
