1 Userinfo Screenshot:
Userinfo is a console utility to display a variety of information about a local user. The project uses loadable modules to perform different tasks which separate the output with a field deliminator.

Some may find it useful in shell scripts to gather information which might be tedious by other methods. It has been tested to run on Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and Solaris.

Usage: ./ui [-vhVL] [-c < filename >] [-t fmt] [-m c] [-F c] [-d]
[[-xX] -O < module1 > [options] [-- [-xX] -O < module2 > [...]]]
[- | username | -f filename] [...]

-d Load the default modules (,, and
-c Read a configuration file. Can be used more than once.
-O Load a module. Can be used more than once.
-x Chain module1's output to module2's input.
-X Don't output module1's info, only chain it.
-F c Separate output with the specified character (':').
-m c Separate multi-string values with the specified character (',').
-t tf strftime(3) time format ('%s').
-f Users are the owners of the specified files.
-L Follow symbolic links.
-v Verbose output when possible (twice for all modules).
-h This help text.
-V Version information

What's New in This Release:

The follow symbolic links option was changed from -l to -L.
The user's idle time from the login module is displayed as seconds rather than minutes.
