Group ID (-GID)

Use the Group ID adapter command (-GID) to set the group ID of the member to be archived or extracted.

-GID gid_num
Option
Description
gid_num
Specify a group ID to be archived or extracted.

When adding a member and -GID is not specified, the group ID is set to 0, the root, unless -FILE is specified, in which case the member inherits the GID of the file.

When extracting a member and -GID is not specified, but -FILE is specified, the group ID of the file to which the member is extracted is set to the same GID as the extracted member.

The Group ID adapter command (-GID) is only supported in environments that support group IDs.
