     groupadd -- add a group to the system

     groupadd [-ov] [-g gid] [-r lowgid..highgid] group

     The groupadd utility adds a group to the system.  See group(8) for more information about
     EXTENSIONS.  The options are as follows:

     -g gid  Give the numeric group identifier to be used for the new group.

     -o      Allow the new group to have a gid which is already in use for another group.

     -r lowgid..highgid
	     Set the low and high bounds of a gid range for new groups.  A new group can only be
	     created if there are gids which can be assigned inside the range.	This option is
	     included if built with EXTENSIONS.

     -v      Enable verbose mode - explain the commands as they are executed.  This option is
	     included if built with EXTENSIONS.

     The groupadd utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

     group(5), group(8), user(8)

     The groupadd utility first appeared in NetBSD 1.5.  It is based on the addnerd package by
     the same author.

     The groupadd utility was written by Alistair G. Crooks <agc@NetBSD.org>.
