I know that using
ls -l "directory/directory/filename" tells me the permissions of a file. How do I do the same on a directory?
I could obviously use
ls -l on the directory higher in the hierarchy and then just scroll till I find it but it's such a pain. If I use
ls -l on the actual directory, it gives the permissions/information of the files inside of it, and not of the actual directory.
I tried this in the terminal of both Mac OS X 10.5 and Linux (Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon), and it's the same result. Is there some sort of flag I should be using?
