newgrp — change primary group for a command
newgrp [-] [
newgrp changes the primary group for a command.
- flag is given as first argument, 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 primary group to the named group, or to the default group listed in /etc/passwd if no group name is given.
By default, the user's standard shell is started, called as login
shell if the
- flag has been specified. If a group
has been given as argument, a command and its arguments can be
specified on the command line.
Please note that setting the primary group to any arbitrary group
is no privileged operation on Windows. However, even if this group is
not in your current user token, or if the group is in your user token
but marked as
deny-only, no additional permissions
can be obtained by setting this group as primary group.
