File Permissions in the Shell

File Permissions in the Shell

Back in Chapter 5, I showed you how to look at file permissions with Konqueror. When you use the ls -l command, you are doing the same thing—looking at basic Linux security at the file (or directory) level. Here is an example of a long ls listing:

$ ls -l
total 3
drwxr-x—-     5 root     system     512   Dec 25 12:01     presents
-r-xr—r—      1 zonthar  users       123   Dec 24 09:30    wishlist
-rw-rw——      1 zonthar  users       637   Nov 15 09:30    griflong
