execute command as different group ID
sg [-] [group [-c ] command]
command works similar to
but accepts a command. The command will be executed with the
shell. With most shells you may run
from, you need to enclose multi-word commands in quotes. Another difference between
is that some shells treat
specially, replacing themselves with a new instance of a shell that
creates. This doesn't happen with
sg, so upon exit from a
command you are returned to your previous group ID.
