Activities

  1. Spend some time creating empty text files and directories, then changing their permissions, and trying to edit, change, copy, or delete them to gain practice with permissions.

  2. See what happens when you create a symbolic link using ln s that refers to a file that doesn't exist. (Hint: The link will still be created, but it might not behave as you would expect.)
