You mean `newusers` I think?
Adding users is a little more tricky due
to the requirement for input of passwords, home dirs, groups, ...
and so an existing util is somewhat useful.
Deleting users is an easier job however.
My previous script assumed that all users
you want to delete are part of a particular unix group.
If not, and you already have a list of usernames then
you can do something like:
while read user; do
userdel -r $user
done < class_of_2006.list
