Just starting with Linux and I have a question about permissions. When I run ls on /bin/bash I get the following permissions output:
Why are there 4 letters on the owner's permissions, namely the last "r" which I have put in bold? Since there are only 3 types - r, w and x, what's the point of the second "r" ?
