Customer Question

I need help with the following.
You now need to write a script for user maintenance. Write a script that will perform the following tasks:
Prompt the system administrator for all valid input parameters
Generate a menu to ask which task is needed to be performed
Create a UNIX group
Drop a UNIX group
Create a user
Drop a user
Note that as part of the Create User section, a UNIX group many be identified that does not already exist, so that group will need to be created as part of the process.
A third script that you need to write will kill all of the processes associated with a user. The following are the requirements:
Prompt the system administrator for the target user name
List the running processes for that user
Confirm with the system administrator before killing the processes
Kill the processes after confirmation
It is very important to note with this task that you should only kill processes for a user and his or her running processes; do not arbitrarily kill running daemons.
