function hook_user_load

Act on user objects when loaded from the database.

Due to the static cache in user_load_multiple() you should not use this hook to modify the user properties returned by the {users} table itself since this may result in unreliable results when loading from cache.


$users: An array of user objects, indexed by uid.
