Hello, guys.

May be you know how to forge /etc/passwd file for embedded system? I
can't execute target passwd (also adduser etc.) on the host machine
and host's version can only write into /etc/passwd. Is there more
reliable and elegant way than to make a backup of current files, forge
new ones and then restore originals (so how to force passwd and
company to use another file to deal with)?

Thanks in advance,
Sergey Naumov.
