       checkgid - checks the gid


       checkgid group


       This manual page documents briefly the checkgid command.

       checkgid  is  a  program that checks whether it can setgid to the group
       specified. This is to see if it is a valid group for apache2 to use  at
       runtime.  If the user (should be run as superuser) is in that group, or
       can setgid to it, it will return 0.
