CHOWN(1)										 CHOWN(1)

       chown, chgrp - change owner or group

       chown owner file ...

       chgrp group file ...

       Chown changes the owner of the files to owner.  The owner may be either a decimal UID or a
       login name found in the password file.

       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.

       Only  the  super-user can change owner or group, in order to simplify as yet unimplemented
       accounting procedures.


       chown(2), passwd(5), group(5)
