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
