chown - change owner
/usr/ucb/chown [-f] [-R] owner [group] filename...
chown changes the owner of the filenames to owner. The owner
may be either a decimal user ID (UID) or a login name found
in the password file. An optional group may also be speci-
fied. The group may be either a decimal group ID (GID) or a
group name found in the GID file.
Only the super-user of the machine where the file is physi-
cally located can change owner, in order to simplify
-f Do not report errors.
-R Recursively descend into directories setting the own-
ership of all files in each directory encountered.
When symbolic links are encountered, their ownership
is changed, but they are not traversed.
