This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Are you thinking about Change Password Utility (CPU) perhaps?

cpu cat should list all users in the LDAP directory.

To list users in /etc/passwd you could use cat /etc/passwd – Jahufar May 19 '11 at 10:31

You're looking for getent, specifically getent passwd.
