Hey there,

can't be too specific because I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do or what your code looks like.

If you want to read the program into a file
cat program >file
if you want to read a file into the program
program <file

to encrypt data use either regular passwd, htpasswd or openssl

Tracking user usage would require parsing a usage file or keeping track of live statistics. I can't be any more specific than that with the info you've given.

Best of luck :)

ive a filename call passwordFile with the functions of adding users, deleting users,locking the workstation etc all using nano script writing.

within these scripts and the username and password in this passwordFile, i must be able to encrypt data in passwordFile and track user usage.

eg : for tracking users usage. yuu ned to sign in with yr username and password first.

continue to reply me . thank yuu.
