The question is dealing with user management and groups w/ Solaris 9.


over coming the 512 character limit per line in /etc/group

Current solution:

Current work around in place create another group with same gid #

staff::10:jon,jean, (and so on up to 500 or so characters)
staff1::10:sam,samatha, (and so on)

Here's what I'm thinking, the ANSI standard to splice lines/command and so
forth is with the backwack \

staff::10:jon,jean, (up to let's say 500 char),geoff, \
buddy,joe (and so on)

Will this work?

Edit: for brain death, it's 512 not 256
