The system doesn't care. From the command line, if the file is marked
executable and has a correct "#!" line, the filename extension is not
relevant. (It can be useful to the user to know what is what without
reading the files, but that's a separate thing.)
But "perl -wc adduser.txt" will probably fail with something very like
Can't locate Debian/AdduserCommon.pm in @INC
so that program probably isn't immediately usable for you, other than
as an inspiration for the commands you want. ("systemcall" in that
file is probably worth looking at.)
groupadd -g, and useradd -g and -u, look like they can be made to do
what you want.
Good luck with it,
