Here’s a script that I wrote that creates user accounts and home directories from a csv in Linux using Python.
This is a common system administration task that be done using shell scripts but is much easier using Python.
Python has a handy csv module that parses csv files so you do not have to worry about it yourself.
I plan to focus my studies on Linux after I complete the MCITP: Enterprise Messaging Administrator 2010 certification. So there will be more scripts to come.
