     groupmod -- modify an existing group on the system

     groupmod [-ov] [-g gid] [-n newname] group

     The groupmod utility modifies an existing group on the system.  See group(8) for more infor-
     mation about EXTENSIONS.  The options are as follows:

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

     -n new-group-name
	     Give the new name which the group shall have.

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

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

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

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

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

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