GROUPINFO(8)            NetBSD System Manager's Manual            GROUPINFO(8)

NAME
     groupinfo -- displays group information

SYNOPSIS
     groupinfo [-ev] group

DESCRIPTION
     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.

FILES
     /etc/usermgmt.conf

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

SEE ALSO
     passwd(5), group(8)
