comment Why can't I execute shutdown when the permission is rwxr-xr-x?

comment Unzipping a TAR file, causing an error
Well it did work before, and wasn't sure if it was suppose to work, so I could successfully extract the file. To be honest I don't know what those letters all mean - I'm still new to all this.
