 utility for managing NIS password, groups and aliases files

Hi all,

I have recently discovered perl and look forward to programming in it.

My first project involves coming up with a user interface to the
/etc/{passwd,group,aliases} files.

I want to be able to maintain these files and keep a record of the
transactions in an Oracle database.

Now, one of my colleagues can handle the Oracle side of it.  

Where can I find a few handy scripts to manage the NIS files, e.g.
creating new accounts, adding users to UNIX groups etc.?

I'm sure this must have been done already.

Is perl the best way to do this?

Thanks in advance, Mike.
