How to create a Directory with permission of drwxrwxrwt


I just know one can create derectory with permission of drwxrwxrwx. I see somewhere a directory with permission of 'drwxrwxrwt'.

What does 't' mean and how to create it?

I find the solution:

chmod +t mydir

The t is the sticky bit. Makes executables stick in memory longer. Don't know if it has much use for folders, though,
as folder execute permission is more about the right to search in the folder, or to access sub-folders.
See
Code:
man 1 chmod
for details (in the middle number one, not lowercase letter ell)

HOW to create?
Do this:

user@host--$: mkdir ./myfolder [this is safer than the faster switching umask]
user@host--$: chmod 777 -R ./myfolder
user@host--$: chmod o+t -R ./myfolder
user@host--$: ls -l myfolder
drwxrwxrwt 2 user group 4096 2009-11-21 17:01 myfolder

Hope it works in your system.

Good luck.
