Re: system users with dot in the name



Does it work if you double quote the user name.

The POSIX standard allows dot characters in usernames if I remember correctly.

At one time I had written a patch and sent it to RH to comply with the dot in
usernames. I believe my reasoning was the POSIX standard.


I believe fileutils is now part of coreutils, I will look to see what may be involved in
writing a new patch.
