Hi Ashok,

You should post each new question as a seperate thread. I can't give you a full answer to this anyway except to say they are different file types. I suppose you know d is directory and l is symlink. c & b are special file types.

Please ask this question again as a new post.

Cheers,
Allison

alar,

Thanks for trying to help the newcomer, but you would clutter the thread less if just reported his OT post to be split into its own thread. (As I just did.)
