Command Line Request for Adding users to group (LDAP)

Indeed, this reminds me that I am still looking for the command line / 
script rendering this task:

1. I have 100 teachers, all in group "teachers".
2. I have a new students group "B2006" which has its own common 
subfolder in home0/Transfer/B2006. Write access is set to group 

Now, in order to give all teachers write access to this shared folder, I 
need to join them to group "B2006". With WLUS, I can do so for a single 
teacher. This takes to long time for 100 teachers.

What I need is a command line or script that joins a set of users (I can 
provide a list of teachers to start with) into a given group (B2006).

The minimum help I ask for is a command line joining user $U into group 
$G. The maximum I hope for is a command that includes Group $G1 into 
$G2 (all users in G1 will join G2).

Thanks a million
