I don't mess with sticky's much so I have not bothered remembering those. I have no idea what this is ("g+s,+t").@floyd: tell me what is the octal value of sgid+sticky ("g+s,+t"), without looking the man
However I do know all the permissions we normally use. I only have to remember 3: 1,2,4 Everything is derived from those 3.
And I don't have to remember the syntax of the command. I don't have to worry about = and , and +.
What is easier for an average beginner? I don't know. I have not done a study. For me, as a beginner, learning the numbers was easier. Both styles existed at the time I was a beginner. The numbers were way easier for me to comprehend. Not everybody is the same.
Its way off topic now.
