Octal Permissions Lookup Table

Table 4.2 shows a selection of octal permissions along with their actual permissions (as shown by the ls -l command). It may help you if haven't yet been able to get your head around using octal numbers to represent absolute permissions (don't worry—you'll get used to it!). Note: the initial character representing the file type is not included.
