GROUP(5) File Formats Manual GROUP(5)NAME
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 names.

GID the numerical group ID.
a list of the usernames that are members of this group, separated by commas.
