printpw - Outputs the contents of the password database
-a Outputs all information. Use of this option is the same as specifying
all options with -cdgsu.
-c Outputs username and the comment string.
-d Output username and the login directory.
-g Outputs username and the group ID numerical value.
-s Output username and the login shell.
-u Output username and the UID numerical value.
The printpw command outputs the contents of the /etc/passwd database file
in ASCII format to the standard output. When printpw is called with no
option, all usernames in the database are output.
The /etc/passwd database file is accessed through the standard library
function getpwent. On secure systems that have changed this library func-
tion or on systems with Network Information Service (NIS) service
installed, printpw produces the same information.
When printpw is called in combination with any option, one or more addi-
tional columns separated with : (colon) is output.
To output the username, UID, and login directory of all users in the pass-
