     groupinfo -- displays group information

     groupinfo [-ev] group

     The groupinfo utility retrieves the group information from the system.  The groupinfo util-
     ity is only available if built with EXTENSIONS.  See group(8) for more information.

     The following command line options are recognised:

     -e      Return 0 if the group exists, and non-zero if the group does not exist, on the sys-
	     tem.  No information is displayed.  This form of the command is useful for scripts
	     which need to check whether a particular group name or gid is already in use on the

     -v      Perform any actions in a verbose manner.

     The group argument may either be a group's name, or a gid.

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

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

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