Thanks. Are the cases that "a user needs sudo to run an executable" the same as the cases that "chmod hasn't set the execution mode bit for the user"? Are the cases that "a user doesn't need sudo to run an executable" the same as the cases that "chmod has set the execution mode bit for the user"?

comment How does the OS know that a command needs sudo?
