CHECKGID(1)               BSD General Commands Manual              CHECKGID(1)


NAME

     checkgid -- validate group identifiers


SYNOPSIS

     checkgid gid


DESCRIPTION

     Given one or more group identifers on the command line (e.g., "httpd" or
     "#-1"), figure out whether they'll be valid for the server to use at run-
     time.

     If a groupname isn't found, or we can't setgid() to it, return -1.  If
     all groups are valid, return 0.

     This may need to be run as the superuser for the setgid() to succeed;
     running it as any other user may result in a false negative.
