    Command:

    vigr

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           vipw [options]
    
           vigr [options]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The vipw and vigr commands edits the files /etc/passwd and /etc/group,
           respectively. With the -s flag, they will edit the shadow versions of
           those files, /etc/shadow and /etc/gshadow, respectively. The programs
           will set the appropriate locks to prevent file corruption. When looking
           for an editor, the programs will first try the environment variable
           $VISUAL, then the environment variable $EDITOR, and finally the default
           editor, vi(1).
