Cool Group list


hi guys, when i type cat /etc/group

some of the lines has this:

users:x:100: - means what?

postfix:!:51: - means what?

root:x:0:administrator - means what?

nogroup:x:65534:nobody - means what?

appreciate for any inputs that will help to shed a light.

thanks in advance.

A simple search would turn up things like this which answer your question. Searching LQ and searching the web should always be the first step in answering your questions.
