NAME
       groups - show group memberships

SYNOPSIS
       groups [user]

DESCRIPTION
       The  groups command shows the groups to which you or the optionally specified user belong.
       Each user belongs to a group specified in the password file /etc/passwd	and  possibly  to
       other  groups as specified in the file /etc/group.  If you do not own a file but belong to
       the group which it is owned by then you are granted group access to the file.

       When a new file is created it is given the group of the containing directory.

       /etc/passwd, /etc/group

BUGS
       More groups should be allowed.
