I have a question: How can you perform Password Administration using "C-Programming" functions.
Basically, we had UNIX Shell script that performed the following:
1. Got the current users password.
2. Did a time computation on it - had it expired yet, and when it will
3. Queried if the user wanted to change their password.
Well, after the time calculations and other UNIX issues, managment decided that it would be better just to use "C" to do these same functions. Start a C-process, pass the appropriate parameters, and perform the appropriate password processing, if necessary.
Can anyone direct me to where I can get more information on this? I am currently utilizing the AIX 4.3 version of UNIX.
Thanks again, for your help in advance....
