CHOWN(1)                                                 CHOWN(1)

     NAME
          chown, chgrp - change owner or group

     SYNOPSIS
          chown owner file ...

          chgrp group file ...

     DESCRIPTION
          Chown changes the owner of the files to owner. The owner may
          be either a decimal UID or a login name found in the pass-
          word 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.

     FILES
          /etc/passwd
          /etc/group
