    Command:

    newgrp

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           newgrp [-] [group]
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           The newgrp command is used to change the current group ID during a
           login session. If the optional - flag is given, the user?s environment
           will be reinitialized as though the user had logged in, otherwise the
           current environment, including current working directory, remains
           unchanged.
    
           newgrp changes the current real group ID to the named group, or to the
           default group listed in /etc/passwd if no group name is given.  newgrp
           also tries to add the group to the user groupset. If not root, the user
           will be prompted for a password if she does not have a password (in
           /etc/shadow if this user has an entry in the shadowed password file, or
           in /etc/passwd otherwise) and the group does, or if the user is not
           listed as a member and the group has a password. The user will be
           denied access if the group password is empty and the user is not listed
           as a member.
    
           If there is an entry for this group in /etc/gshadow, then the list of
           members and the password of this group will be taken from this file,
           otherwise, the entry in /etc/group is considered.
