Unix Version 7 - man page for newgrp (v7 section 1)

NEWGRP(1)			     General Commands Manual				NEWGRP(1)

NAME
       newgrp - log in to a new group

SYNOPSIS
       newgrp group

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       A password is demanded if the group has a password and the user himself does not.

       When  most  users log in, they are members of the group named `other.'  Newgrp is known to
       the shell, which executes it directly without a fork.

FILES
       /etc/group, /etc/passwd

SEE ALSO
       login(1), group(5)
