GROUPS(1)                        User Commands                       GROUPS(1)



NAME
       groups - display current group names

SYNOPSIS
       groups [user]

DESCRIPTION
       The groups command displays the current group names or ID values. If
       the value does not have a corresponding entry in /etc/group, the value
       will be displayed as the numerical group value. The optional user
       parameter will display the groups for the named user.

NOTE
       Systems which do not support concurrent group sets will have the
       information from /etc/group reported. The user must use newgrp or sg to
       change his current real and effective group ID.

FILES
       /etc/group
           Group account information.
