See BLT.

file permissions: The attributes (read, write, execute) for any file on who can read, write and execute it. Each of these three attributes are given to three groups:

  • The Owner (changeable with chown)
  • Group(s) (changeable with chgrp)
  • Everyone else(?)

Clarification: The owner can be changed with chown, the group can be changed with chgrp (or chown), but the permissions for any of these is changed with the chmod command.

Sometimes I (and others??) use the phrase "file permissions" to refer generally to both file ownership and permsissions. This can be somewhat misleading.
