NAME

       vipw, vigr - edit the password, group, shadow-password or shadow-group
       file.

SYNOPSIS

       vipw [-s]

       vigr [-s]

DESCRIPTION

       vipw and vigr will edit 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).
