Uid/Gid Question

Hello All,

I want to use perl to develop a script to add users and such other functionality. I just wanted to find out what would be the simplest way to get
the next available uid/gid combo, say if aly is 500:500 for user/group how could I get 501 for the next user ? Is there some function ?
