comment Clarify something about Linux directory permissions
@thomasrutter - AFAIK, you is correct. It's a fine point but it must be made, as some admins could make assumptions about file access based off the output of ls -l. The lesson for those admins is that when securing files, also pay attention to the link count in the output of ls. The GNU find utility also is helpful here when used with the -samefile option which helps to ferret out other hardlinks to the same file. I use find . -type f -links +1 -exec ls -l {} \; to find all files with multiple hard links or the -samefile option to find other links to the same file.

This was tested and confirmed in RHEL version 5. All the path trees to the file do not have to be accessible.
