       VM::EC2::Group - Object describing an Amazon EC2 security group name


         use VM::EC2;

         $ec2      = VM::EC2->new(...);
         $instance = $ec2->describe_instances(-instance_id=>'i-12345');
         my @groups = $instance->groups;
         for my $g (@groups) {
           my $id      = $g->groupId;
           my $name    = $g->groupName;

           # get the security group details
           my $sg      = $ec2->describe_security_group($g);
           my $permissions = $sg->ipPermissions;


       This object represents the name and ID of a security group. It is returned by an
       instance's groups() method. This object does not provide any of the details about the
       security group, but you can use it in a call to VM::EC2->describe_security_group() to get
       details about the security group's allowed ports, etc.


       These object methods are supported:

        groupId   -- the group ID
        groupName -- the group's name

       For convenience, the object also provides a permissions() method that will return the
       fully detailed VM::EC2::SecurityGroup:

        $details = $group->permissions()

       See VM::EC2::SecurityGroup


       When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the groupId.
