old school hscript way..

echo `primgroupmask("/obj/yourObject/yourSOP","yourGroupName*")`�
The above will return the names of all groups matching the "yourGroupName*"


echo `primgrouplist("/obj/box_object1/group1")`�
The above will return *all* prim groups for the specified SOP.

If you name the groups with a "_" you can use the rindex command to find
that location and then substr out from that (position+1) to the strlen of
the groupname.

just be sure to loop through the list of groupNames if you have many.

set var =`primgrouplist("/obj/box_object1/group1")`�
echo $var
echo `substr($var, rindex($var,"_")+1,strlen($var))`


you could do it with HOM.. but I'm not up on that as of yet.
