    Every object on your Linux system has a permission mode that describes what actions a user can perform on it. There are three types of permissions: read (r), write (w), and execute (x).

    Toreada file is to view its contents. For example, a text file must havereadpermission for someone to read the text within. If the user wants to add a sentence to that file, it needswritepermission. Theexecutepermission enables someone to run a file, such as a shell script or a binary program file.
