One last question that I just thought of:

I know to add users, you use adduser.
I know to delete users, you use deluser.

However, how can I list the current users on the system, much like "ls -lh"?
Right now the only way I can view users on my system is to do "vim
/etc/passwd", however I don't feel safe doing this... I would prefer a
read-only method if it is available.
