       groups [user]

       The command shows the groups to which the specified user belongs deter‐
       mined by reading These are the groups that will be in effect  the  next
       time the usr logs in.  If the command is used without the usr argument,
       it will report the groups currently in effect using the system call. If
       the file was changed after the login, this may not be the same.

       Each  user belongs to a group specified in the password file and possi‐
       bly to other groups as specified in the file If you do not own  a  file
       but  you	 do  belong to the group by which it is owned, you are granted
       group access to the file.

       When a new file is created it is given the group specifications of  the
       directory in which it resides.
