Command Line

...but neither my friend, Google, nor my man, man, are seeming to help me.

So, when you do an ls -l, you get a bunch of information.

What does a plus sign mean, after the security mode info?

e.g.: "ls -l"

-rwxrwxrwx   1 username group    44544 2011-04-29 10:37 Filename2.doc
-rwxrwxrwx+  1 username group    44544 2011-04-08 17:52 Filename.doc

Plus sign means that a file have a default ACL or an access ACL that contains more than the three required ACL entries.
