I mean the rights for Unix' chmod command.

+1 for the link to a useful site, but you could have made it clear in your answer, such as "Yes, as indicated by this site - <link>" – Rob Cowell Oct 31 '11 at 12:03
It'd actually be --s--s--T as formatted by ls. --S--S--s is nonsense (since the last should be t), and would be 7001 in any case. – Random832 Oct 31 '11 at 14:16
