SYNOPSIS

lchfn [OPTION]... [user]

 

DESCRIPTION

Displays and allows changing information about user that is available using the finger(1) command (usually stored in the "gecos" field of /etc/passwd).

Entering an empty string (by pressing Enter) at a prompt is interpreted as accepting a default value; to erase an attribute (or to use an empty string as the attribute value), enter a single dot character.
