    Get user list

    i have posted below another question similar to this one but not the same.

    anyway.

    is it possible to obtain a list of users currently logged in using perl. and if possible extra data such as time...

    can anyone point me out a few places. i have had a look on google. look at websites such as:

    http://articles.techrepublic.com.com...1-5974002.html

    and

    http://www.builderau.com.au/program/...9222142,00.htm

    but none of them really help

    I'm afraid you need to explain what you didn't understand.

    Which platform are you needing, Windows, Linux, MAC?

    Do you need to know who is currently logged in at the console or from the network?

    i own a small business thats all. just want to know what time my workers logg in. (or when they online.) all my computers are Windows (XP)

    i'll rephrase what i am asking.

    i need a perl script/code to get a user list. and if possible time logged on, all my computers are also on a network.

    One or more Perl scripts can be used to accomplish this, but in this case, a Perl script is not the best solution.

    If you already haven't done so, setup your network as a Windows Active Directory Domain. AD has many tools to monitor and control user logins and much more.

    ok. thankx. i'll have a look. just. i much prefer coding thing myself. as i absolute hate microsoft programs (some of them only) because they require around 18 mb ram and 32 mb processor and a 16 mb graphics cards to do something that should only take up to 4-5 mb processor. and no or basically none, ram and gpu processing....... let alone the size of things.

    i usually like making myself programs. because i know whats it in . and how much it requires.

    and. for example. i have coded a very basic version of notepad. with the only elements i use in my normal life. and it uses half what notepad does.

    why don't you plan to move on a *nix system. I agree that this can't be done over night and sometimes is impossible, if you use some specific software, but you have more control and costs for maintenance are smaller.
    I don't use windows for more then 12 years and I'm pretty happy,

    best regards
