no my question is to do this automatically
because when the admin has installed cygwin on a computer, it adds users
and each users has to define the variable HOME,
but if they use ssh, they have to chang /etc/passwd too.
i want to create a install file which update automatically /etc/passwd, puts defaults files (bashrc, inputrc,...)
i see that there is the mkpasswd command but it doesn't do what i want
do you know when /etc/passwd is created???
