Linux permissions (easy)

Trying to grasp the concept of permissions in Unix.

ie:  rwx---x-rwt

1. I know that the first part (rwx) applies to the permissions the owner gets on the file. He can read, write and execute. This is equivalent to "7"

The second part (---)  applies to the group <---(this is where I'm lost. What "group?")

The third part applies to everyone else.  What significance does the "t" have?

Thanks

Hi

you can specify your users to a groups. And then apply permitions for a whole group rather than one by one for each user.

t - Save text attribute (sticky bit) - The user may delete or modify only those files in the directory that they own or have write permission for.

please have a look here:

hope this help
