I'd like to ask you something that's bothering me for the last couple of days. On my system I keep a folder called myscripts under my usual home folder.
What I tried to do is
chmod 500 myscripts
and pressed enter. After that I did
ls -l ~
to confirm and I got
dr-x------ 2 Konos5 people 2048 Jun 21 22:51 myscripts
From what I understand I now should not be able to write anything within the myscripts folder. However if I type
the file hello.txt is normally created. How is that happening and what happened to the "no write" permission bit?
And one last thing. Before I change the permissions of that folder I had already kept the infamous youtube-dl script with -rwx- permissions. If I now run the script it will automatically download a youtube video and write it on my disk (within myscripts folder). Again, how is that possible since the folder's permissions are -rx- only?
Thank you in advance
