GID from ksh

My SVR4 system runs several programs which need their own group id. I use newgrp for users to be able the different programs.

How van I determine the GID choosen to take actions according?

On some systems, `id -g` gives you the answer.
I don't remember whether SVR4's id is "nice" or "dumb".
Even in the latter case, though, you can manipulate the output of "id".

Try this:

(all on one line, of course)

gid=`/usr/bin/id | cut -d ' ' -f 2 | cut -d '=' -f 2 | sed -e 's/(.*)//'`

id -a gives all groups. Otherwise it´s the dumb version.
