    DESCRIPTION

           The  /etc/group file is a text file that defines the groups on the sys-
           tem.  There is one entry per line, with the following format:
    
                  group_name:password:GID:user_list
    
           The fields are as follows:
    
           group_name  the name of the group.
    
           password    the (encrypted) group password.  If this field is empty, no
                       password is needed.
    
           GID         the numeric group ID.
    
           user_list   a  list  of  the  usernames that are members of this group,
                       separated by commas.

    BUGS

           As the 4.2BSD  initgroups(3)  man  page  says:  No-one  seems  to  keep
           /etc/group up-to-date.
