chmod I could set the permissions for a file, but if the parent (
.. ) directory had conflicting permissions, what would happen?
And if I create a new file, using
touch or something similiar, how are the initial permissions calculated? Are permissions inherited it from
And why can't I do anything in directory when I removed the
executable permission flag?
$ mkdir temp; $ chmod -x temp; $ touch temp/a; $ ls temp; touch: cannot touch `temp/a': Permission denied
