access permissions of a file or directory, type ls -ls *. r=read
access, x=execute access, w=write access. The first three letters apply

u = the file's user (or owner)
r = read access
g = the file's group
x = execute access
o = others
w = write access

chmod go-r = don't let people in the file's group or others to read
chmod g+x = let people in the file's group execute the file
