NAME
       groups -	print group membership of user

SYNOPSIS
       groups [user...]

DESCRIPTION
       The command groups prints on standard output the	groups to which	you or
       the optionally specified	user belong. Each  user	 belongs  to  a	 group
       specified  in  /etc/passwd and possibly to other	groups as specified in
       /etc/group. Note	that  /etc/passwd specifies the	numerical ID (gid)  of
       the  group.  The	 groups	 command converts gid to the group name	in the
       output.

EXAMPLES
       The output takes	the following form:

	      example% groups tester01 tester02
	      tester01 : staff
	      tester02 : staff
	      example%
