The completionist in me is incredibly annoyed by the lack of a "userls" tool. Yes I know there are a million ways to get the information and probably someone already made that very tool but why is it not a part of the default package? Seems like such an obvious thing to include.

@espen I'm aware that root can use passwd -Sa to get a list of users and their status. No idea if there's anything for standard users other than opening the passwd file.

@galaxis Thanks, haven't really played with that command. But I was more after user details, like uid, group memberships, configured shell and home directory. "usermod" makes it easy to change these things, but surely there must be an equally easy way to view currect values?
