file permissions OK, but command permissions?
I know the various permissions that you can set on files and directories, but how different are commands?
Every thing is meant to be a file in linux, so for the "ls" command i should be able to check out "ls" in /bin and who is allowed execute it.
But read permissions? what does read permissions on a command mean? Who wants to read binary files?
I also want to know what happens when you "ls -al" or "file" a file? That's not reading it, is it? I mean I know "more" is reading a file, but "ls"?. All you're doing is asking for a name and description.
