CPU(8)                                                                  CPU(8)

       cpu(5,8,8 cpu-ldap) - A tool for user and group administration

       cpu(5,8,8 cpu-ldap) [OPTIONS]

       CPU  is  a  tool  for  user administration, that was initially based on
       FreeBSD's pw(8). This tool will  allow  you  to  administer  users(1,5)  and
       groups  on several different backends currently including LDAP and flat
       files. Please  see  the  website  for  more
       information, or help improve the man(1,5,7) page.

       There  are  two  kinds  of options; options for CPU and options for CPU
       modules.  There are only four options for CPU, they are as follows:

       -C configfile, --config configfile
              The configuration file(1,n) to be used by CPU. The  options  in(1,8)  this
              file(1,n) are used for CPU modules.

       -h, --help
              Display  help  for  CPU. If specified in(1,8) conjunction with the -m
              option the help for that particular module is displayed.

       -M method, --method=method
              This is the method of administration. Current options  are  ldap(3,5,n)
              or  passwd(1,5) (passwd(1,5) is not yet working). This can be specified in(1,8)
              the configuration file.

       -V, --version
              Display the version(1,3,5) of the software.
