# Object::Permission::Group

Object helper for [Object::Permission](https://github.com/jonathanstowe/Object-Permission) using unix groups.

## Synopsis

```perl6
	use Object::Permission::Group; # $*AUTH-USER is derived from $*USER

   # Or:

   Use Object::Permission::Group;

	# Set $*AUTH-USER to one for a specified user
   $*AUTH-USER = Object::Permission::Group.new(user => 'wibble');
```

## Description

This provides a simple implementation of
```Object::Permission::User``` to be used with
[Object::Permission](https://github.com/jonathanstowe/Object-Permission)
which derives the permissions for the ```$*AUTH-USER``` from the users
unix group membership.

By default ```$*AUTH-USER``` is initialised based on the value of
```$*USER``` (i.e. the effective user,) but it can be set manually with
the permissions of an arbitrary user (as in the second example above.)


## Installation

    # From the source directory
   
    zef install .

    # Remote installation

    zef install Object::Permission::Group
