groupinfo -- displays group information
groupinfo [-ev] group
The groupinfo utility retrieves the group information from the system.
The groupinfo utility 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 system. 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 system.
-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>.
