SYNOPSIS

 use AnyData;
 my $users = adTie( 'Passwd', '/etc/passwd' );
 print $users->{jdoe}->{homedir};
 # ... other tied hash operations

 OR

 my $dbh = DBI->connect('dbi:AnyData:');
 $dbh->func('users','Passwd','/etc/passwd','ad_catalog');
 my $g7 = $dbh->selectall_arrayref( qq{
     SELECT username, homedir FROM users WHERE GID = '7'
 });

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a tied hash interface and a DBI/SQL interface to passwd files. Simply specify the format as 'Passwd' and give the name of the file and the modules will build a hash table with the column names

 username
 passwd
 UID
 GID
 fullname
 homedir
 shell

The username field is treated as a key column.

This module is a submodule of the AnyData.pm and DBD::AnyData.pm modules. Refer to their documentation for further details.
