Re: group members



Actually .... no, well at least not completely.


The usernames will show up in the /etc/group if that group is secondary for the user. Some of the default groups created by OS will have a primary user as well, but useradd command does not add username for the primary user group to the /etc/groups.


So I will suggest grep <groupname> /etc/passwd; grep <groupName> /etc/group to get all of them.

Hope it helps.

How about:
   grep ^<groupName>: /etc/group
?
