group - group file
Group contains for each group the following information:
numerical group ID
a comma separated list of all users allowed in the group
This is an ASCII file. The fields are separated by colons; Each group is separated from
the next by a new-line. If the password field is null, no password is demanded.
This file resides in directory /etc. Because of the encrypted passwords, it can and does
have general read permission and can be used, for example, to map numerical group ID's to
setgroups(2) , initgroups(3X) , crypt(3) , passwd(1) , passwd(5)
The passwd(1) command won't change the passwords.
