In the previous segment of this article, I discussed the various library functions related to user and group management, and also showed you some examples of how they could be used in real-world Web application development.

While the API for user and group management does form the core of the patUser library, it's not all there is on display. patUser also includes a number of utility functions that can come in handy for certain specialized tasks. These functions include identifying users and groups by different criteria (such as name or email address); keeping track of the URLs visited by the user so as to generate a user trail; maintaining user account statistics for auditing purposes; and providing exception-handling routines for more graceful error handling.

All these (and more) are discussed in the following pages - so keep reading!
