The command was trying to make the file jre-6ul... executable for
everyone. If you type
> ls -l /home/steven/Desktop/jre-6u11-linux-i586.bin
you should something like:
-rwxr-xr-x 1 jhubbard jhubbard 30 2008-09-07 09:48 dates
The rwx stuff is telling you who has read, write, and execute
privileges. The first three rwx tell whether the user who owns the file
has the rights, the second set tells whether the group that owns the
file has rights, and the final set tells whether all user have rwx
privileges. In this case the file 'dates' can be executed by user
jhubbard, members of the group jhubbard, and also everyone else. The
file can only we written by the user jhubbard. And just like execution
everyone can read it. After the list of who owns it you get the size of
the file. The file is actually bigger than one byte and I am not sure
why it is only showing up as that size. After size, is the user and then
the group that owns the file. Then the date that the file was modified on.
Hope this helps.
To be or not to be, that is the question
2b || !2b
(0b10)*(0b1100010) || !(0b10)*(0b1100010)
0b11000100 || !0b11000100
0b11000100 || 0b00111011
255, that is the answer.
