From this page, http://content.hccfl.edu/pollock/aunix1/filepermissions.htm, I understand that I need the +w bit set in a directory to create a new file and +x bit to cd into it/access its inode. So far, so good. But, I can't use vi/cat/nano/echo etc to do stuff like:
echo hello > dir/file
because I can't access inode of dir. My question is, how do I create/delete/rename a new file in dir if I can't access its inode ? Can I edit the directory structure using
and create/edit/rename a new file? Is there a tutorial to do so ?
