I have a file on my Darwin system and the permissions are:


User: read, write, execute Group: read, execute Other: read, execute

What is the 11th notation the @ mean?

In addition to this, I was led to believe that files/directories only had 10 places for their permissions? This, including the missing d from the front, would make 11.


@ means there are "extended attributes".
