Change User Password using Python on openBSD

Dear All,

I started using Python just a few days back and there was a requirement of an assigned project to change the user Password through script without user interaction. I could write the following peace of code, which uses Pexpect for the same. The mentioned Poc may certainly help others, incase they need some requirement like this.

import pexpect, sys

if len(sys.argv) != 3:
print "Usage: "+sys.argv[0]+" user new_password."
sys.exit(1)
(user, password) = (sys.argv[1], sys.argv[2])

child = pexpect.spawn('passwd %s' %user)
child.expect('New password:')
child.sendline(password)
child.expect('Retype new password:')
child.sendline(password)

print child.before
child.expect(pexpect.EOF)


Rgds,
Geo :)
