"gpasswd -R" vs "gpasswd -r": what is the difference?


There are two special options to forbid users which aren't in a particular group to execute newgrp command: -r and -R.

What is the difference, if any, between them?

Both works absolutely equally for me.

Thanks.

-r should remove a the password from the group while -R should disable access to the group. check out the man page here http://www.linuxmanpages.com/man1/gpasswd.1.php
