Development Tools Console Foundations Users and Permissions Creating Users

Im trying to create a user in the Mac Terminal, but i get this error message: sudo: adduser: command not found

I type: sudo adduser, then I type my user password and then i get the error message.

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you

Unfortunately, the adduser command seems to be unique to some Linux distros (such as Ubuntu, which is used in the Treehouse Web Console). The process on OS X is a little more complicated, but Mac|Life did a pretty good tutorial on it
