g

Syntax

g GroupName <objects>


Argument(s)

GroupName
Name of the group to add <Objects> to.
<Objects>
List of objects to add to GroupName


Return Value(s)

No Return Values for this command.


Description

The "g" command creates a special type of combination often referred to as a group. This builds a combination by unioning together all the listed objects. If groupname already exists, then the list of objects will be unioned to the end of it. (Note that an existing groupname is not restricted to being a group; any combination is legal.) Other commands to build combinations are c, r, or comb.


Example(s)

mged> g car engine.r
Create or append to the 'car' group by adding the 'engine.r' object.
