       VM::EC2::SecurityGroup::GroupPermission - Object describing an authorized group within a
       security group firewall rule


         $ec2      = VM::EC2->new(...);
         $sg       = $ec2->describe_security_groups(-name=>'My Group');
         @rules = $sg->ipPermissions;
         $rule  = $rules[0];

         @groups = $rule->groups;
         for my $g (@groups) {
           $userId = $g->userId;
           $name   = $g>groupName;
           $id     = $g->groupId;
           $group_object = $g->security_group;


       This object describes a security group whose instances are granted permission to exchange
       data traffic with another group of instances. It is returned by the groups() method of

       Note that this object is not the same as a bona fide VM::EC2::SecurityGroup, which has
       access to the group's firewall rules. This object contains just the name, id and owner of
       a group used within a firewall rule. For groups that belong to you, you can get the full
       VM::EC2::SecurityGroup object by calling the security_group() method. These details are
       not available to groups that belong to other accounts.


   $id = $group->groupId
       Return the group's unique ID.

   $id = $group->userId
       Return the account ID of the owner of this group.

   $id = $group->groupName
       Return this group's name.

   $string = $group->short_name
       Return a string for use in string overloading. See "STRING OVERLOADING".

   $sg = $group->security_group
       For groups that belong to the current account, calls VM::EC2->describe_security_groups()
       to turn the group name into a VM::EC2::SecurityGroup. For groups that belong to a
       different account, will return undef, since describe_security_groups() on other accounts
       is not allowed by Amazon.


       When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the user id and group name in
       the form "userId/groupName" for groups that belong to other accounts, and the groupName
       alone in the case of groups that belong to you.
