Learning by doing ;).

$ chown --help
Usage: chown [OPTION]... [OWNER][:[GROUP]] FILE...
  or:  chown [OPTION]... --reference=RFILE FILE...
  chown root /u        Change the owner of /u to "root".
  chown root:staff /u  Likewise, but also change its group to "staff".
  chown -hR root /u    Change the owner of /u and subfiles to "root".

When you learned how to use several commands, you automatically learn
how to interpret something like [OWNER][:[GROUP]]. Sometimes
man(ual)pages and --help gives examples.

I don't use DuckDuckGo, because it doesn't provide German search. I
don't use Google or ixquick, because I prefer to get the advantages of
both, by using StartPage ;).
