UNIX User Accounts
In the last section of this chapter, you will see how to create a new user and assign that user to one or more groups. Users can create directories and files of their own. In Chapter 14, “File Permissions and System Security,” you will see how users can set access permissions on their directories and files so that some other users can access those directories and files, while other users cannot.
Check out the following example:
-rw-rw---- 1 mori dbhelp 948 Jul 17 1996 mp4.1.2 -rw-rw---- 1 lazar integ 948 Jul 29 1996 mp4.1.3 -rw-rw---- 1 stull dbhelp 951 Mar 24 1998 mp4.1.3a
In this example, the following is true:
File mp4.1.2 belongs to user mori and to group dbhelp.
File mp4.1.3 belongs to user lazar and to group integ.
