NEWGRP(1)		   Linux Programmer's 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 per-
       formed with respect to the new group ID.

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

FILES
       /etc/group
       /etc/passwd

SEE ALSO
       login(1), group(5)
