       newgrp - log in to a new group

       newgrp [ group ]

       Newgrp  changes the group identification of its caller, analogously to login(1).  The same
       person remains logged in, and the current directory  is	unchanged,  but  calculations  of
       access permissions to files are performed with respect to the new group ID.

       If no group is specified, the GID is changed to the login GID.


       login(1), group(5)
