Perl gives access to the user's shadow password itself via getpw*, but the
rest of the shadow entry is not available (expire is theoretically available
if compiled that way, but it isn't universal).  This module provides a Perl
interface to the shadow routines getspnam, getspent, setspent and endspent,
allowing the full shadow password structure to be returned.  Like all access
to the shadow files, root privileges are required to return anything - non-
root users get nothing.
