    Why Terminal highlights folders yellow?
    Hello,

    I can't figure out why when I do "ls" in terminal some of my folders are highlighted in yellow and some are not. Can someone tell us?

    It's kind of annoying, I'd like to know why it does that, and if it's a useful like a search highlighter.

    Thanks!

    Write access to everyone
    Files with write permissions for everyone show up as yellow.

    chmod 700 or chmod 770 will not be yellow.
