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%
