    Command:

    chfn

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           chfn  [-f full-name] [-o office] ,RB [ -p office-phone] [-h home-phone]
           -u] [-v] [username]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           chfn is used to change your finger information.   This  information  is
           stored in the /etc/passwd file, and is displayed by the finger program.
           The Linux finger command will display four pieces of  information  that
           can  be  changed by chfn: your real name, your work room and phone, and
           your home phone.
    
       COMMAND LINE
           Any of the four pieces of information can be specified on  the  command
           line.   If  no  information  is  given on the command line, chfn enters
           interactive mode.
    
       INTERACTIVE MODE
           In interactive mode, chfn will prompt for each field.  At a prompt, you
           can  enter the new information, or just press return to leave the field
           unchanged.  Enter the keyword "none" to make the field blank.
