Those are the programs that actually run when you add new users through the System Managers, and their configuration files (listed in the man pages) control what is placed in a user's default "profile."

Thank you, and for future reference, man page for addUserAccount points to various files in /var/sysadm/config containing new user parameters:

Code: Select all

FILES
     /etc/passwd
     /var/sysadm/config/newaccount.config
          New user setup config file
     /var/sysadm/config/newaccount.script
          New user setup script
     /var/sysadm/config/default.cshrc
          Default .cshrc for new users
     /var/sysadm/config/default.login
          Default .login for new users
     /var/sysadm/config/default.profile
          Default .profile for new users

Shame the man page for newaccount seems to be missing from techpubs and nixdoc (am online from a laptop at the mo' - can check later on the Fuel)
Fuel; Indigo2; RiscPC Kinetic-StrongARM/448MB/RISCOS4.39 or Debian-etch; EspressoPC ViaC3/900MHz/256MB/Debian-testing; RPi B RISCOS5.21 or Raspbian-jessie; A5000/33MHz/FPA11/8MB/RISCOS3.11; A540/25MHz/FPA10/16MB/RISCOS3.11 or RISCiX1.21; R140/35MHz/4MB/RISCOS3.11 or RISCiX1.21
