This module provides functions to query the Unix password database.
These objects are returned by the functions in this module and represent an entry in the password database.
They are a thin wrapper around a
struct passwd structure.
- name: user name
- passwd: user password (typically ‘x’, since it’s encrypted)
- uid: user ID
- gid: group ID
- gecos: user information / description
- dir: user home directory
- shell: user shell
