Take Control of Permissions in Leopard
Solve quirky problems, increase privacy, and share files better by managing permissions in Leopard.
Permissions problems got you down? Turn to Unix expert Brian Tanaka's unique guide to the permissions in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard that control access to your files, folders, and disks. You'll learn how to keep files private, when to set Ignore Permissions, what happens when you repair permissions, how to delete stuck files, and the best ways to solve permissions-related problems. Advanced concepts include the sticky bit, Leopard's more-important access control lists, bit masks, and symbolic versus absolute ways to set permissions. The book covers how to take control of permissions via the Finder, with Mac utilities, and using the command line.
10.6 Snow Leopard? Take Control of Permissions in Snow Leopard is available.
