       Modifies the user with name user.



OPTIONS

       -c, --gecos=gecos
              Set  user’s GECOS field to gecos.  The GECOS field is tradition-
              ally used to store user’s real name and other information.


       -d, --directory=directory
              Set user’s home directory to directory.


       -g, --gid=gid
              Change user’s primary group ID to gid.


       -i, --interactive
              Ask all questions when connecting to the user database, even  if
              default answers are set up in libuser configuration.


       -L, --lock
              Lock  user’s  account.   This  prevents  logging in using user’s
              password.


       -l, --login=name
              Rename user to name.


       -m, --movedirectory
              After changing user’s home directory (using the -d option), move
              the old home directory to the new location.


       -P, --plainpassword=password
              Set  user’s password to password.  Note that the password can be
              viewed while running lusermod using tools such as ps(1).


       -p, --password=encrypted
              Set user’s password to the  password  represented  by  the  hash
              encrypted.   Note  that  the  hash  can  be viewed while running
              lusermod using tools such as ps(1).


       -s, --shell=shell
              Set user’s login shell to shell.


       -U, --unlock
              Unlock user’s account.


       -u, --uid=uid
              Change user’s user ID to uid.

       The exit status is 0 on success, nonzero on error.
