-utility requests that the nice values of one or more
-running processes be changed. By default, the applicable processes
-are specified by their process IDs. When a process group is specified
-), the request applies to all processes in the process group. If the
-requested increment would raise or lower the nice value of the
-executed utility beyond its limits, then the limit whose value was
-exceeded is used. When a user is reniced, the request applies to all
-processes whose saved set-user-ID matches the user ID corresponding to
-the user. Regardless of which options are supplied or any other factor,
-renice does not alter the nice values of any process unless the user
-requesting such a change has appropriate privileges to do so for the
-specified process. If the user lacks appropriate privileges to perform
-the requested action, the utility returns an error status.
-The saved set-user-ID of the user's process is checked instead of its
-effective user ID when renice attempts to determine the user ID of the
-process in order to determine whether the user has appropriate privileges.
-interpret all operands as unsigned decimal integer process group IDs.
-specify how the nice value of the specified process or processes
-is to be adjusted. The increment option-argument is a positive or
-negative decimal integer used to modify the nice value of the
-specified process or processes. positive increment values cause a
-lower nice value. Negative increment values may require appropriate
-privileges and cause a higher nice value.
-interpret all operands as unsigned decimal integer process IDs.
-option is the default if no options are specified.
-interpret all operands as users. If a user exists with a user name
-equal to the operand, then the user ID of that user is used in further
-processing. Otherwise, if the operand represents an unsigned decimal
-integer, used as the numeric user ID of the user.
-.SH EXIT VALUES
-On successful completion 0 is returned, a value which is >0 is
-returned on error.
-used to map user names to user ID's.
-.SH CONFORMING TO
-utility is IEEE Std 1003.1-2001 (POSIX.1) compatible.
-.I "renice -n 5 -p 987 32"
-Adjust the nice value so that process IDs 987 and 32 would have a
-lower nice value.
-.I "renice -n -4 -g 324 76"
-Adjust the nice value so that group IDs 324 and 76 would have a
-higher nice value, if the user has the appropriate privileges to do so.
-.I "renice -n 4 -u 8 sas"
-Adjust the nice value so that numeric user ID 8 and user sas would
-have a lower nice value.
-Useful nice value increments on historical systems include
-19 or 20 (the affected processes run only when nothing else in the
-system attempts to run) and any negative number
-(to make processes run faster).
