Hi guys,
I apologize if this has been asked but I searched the forum without finding what I was looking for. I am switching to a Mac from using Linux(Fedora) and I was wondering what the @ and + are for File/Directory permissions?

[greg@ ~] ls -le
total 0
drwxr-xr-x 5 greg staff 170 Oct 21 13:39 Bin/
drwx------+ 3 greg staff 102 Oct 20 13:46 Desktop/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwx------+ 4 greg staff 136 Oct 20 13:46 Documents/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwx------+ 8 greg staff 272 Oct 21 09:18 Downloads/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwx------+ 36 greg staff 1224 Oct 21 13:40 Library/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwx------+ 3 greg staff 102 Oct 20 13:46 Movies/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwx------+ 4 greg staff 136 Oct 20 15:14 Music/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwxr-xr-x 2 greg staff 68 Oct 21 14:01 Opt/
drwx------+ 11 greg staff 374 Oct 21 10:57 Pictures/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwxr-xr-x+ 5 greg staff 170 Oct 20 13:46 Public/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwxr-xr-x+ 5 greg staff 170 Oct 20 13:46 Sites/
0: group:everyone deny delete
drwxr-xr-x 5 greg staff 170 Oct 21 14:01 Src/


Also I was curious as to what 0: group:everyone deny delete means as well as the 5, 3, 4, 11 before greg staff.

I appreciate the help!

Regards,
Greg Sieranski

They are reflecting ACL permissions vs the POSIX you are used to.

chmod will allow you to change ACL permissions.
