      setprivgrp - set special privileges for groups

      setprivgrp groupname [privileges]

      setprivgrp -g [privileges]

      setprivgrp -n [privileges]

      setprivgrp -f file

      The setprivgrp command associates a group with a list of privileges,
      thus providing access to certain system capabilities for members of a
      particular group or groups.  The privileges can be displayed with the
      getprivgrp command (see getprivgrp(1)).

      Privileges can be granted to individual groups, as defined in the
      /etc/group file, and globally for all groups.

      Only a superuser can use the setprivgrp command.

    Options and Arguments
      setprivgrp recognizes the following options and arguments:

	   privileges	  One or more of the keywords described below in
			  "Privileged Capabilities".

	   groupname	  The name of a group defined in the file named
			  /etc/group.  The current privileges for groupname,
			  if any, are replaced by the specified privileges.
			  To retain prior privileges, they must be

	   -g		  Specify global privileges that apply to all
			  groups.  The current privileges, if any, are
			  replaced by the specified privileges, To retain

			  file file.  This file is usually /etc/privgroup.
			  The entry formats are described below in "Group
			  Privileges File Format".

    Privileged Capabilities
      The following system capabilities can be granted to groups:

	   CHOWN	  Can use chown() to change file ownerships (see

	   LOCKRDONLY	  Can use lockf() to set locks on files that are
			  open for reading only (see lockf(2)).

	   MLOCK	  Can use plock() to lock process text and data into
			  memory, and the shmctl() SHM_LOCK function to lock
			  shared memory segments (see plock(2) and

	   RTPRIO	  Can use rtprio() to set real-time priorities (see

	   RTSCHED	  Can use sched_setparam() and sched_setscheduler()
			  to set POSIX.4 real-time priorities (see

	   SERIALIZE	  Can use serialize() to force the target process to
			  run serially with other processes that are also
			  marked by this system call (see serialize(2)).

	   SETRUGID	  Can use setuid() and setgid() to change,
			  respectively, the real user ID and real group ID
			  of a process (see setuid(2) and setgid(2)).

    Group Privileges File Format
      The file specified with the -f option should contain one or more lines
      in the following formats:

		groupname [privileges]

		-g [privileges]
