NAME
chgrp - change group
SYNOPSIS
chgrp [ -f -R ] group file ...
DESCRIPTION
Chgrp changes the group-ID of the files to group. The group may be either a decimal GID or a group name found in the group-ID file. The user invoking chgrp must belong to the specified group and be the owner of the file, or be the super-user. No errors are reported when the -f (force) option is given. When the -R option is given, chgrp recursively descends its directory arguments setting the specified group-ID. When symbolic links are encountered, their group is changed, but they are not traversed.
FILES
/etc/group
