,----[ (coreutils)What information is listed ]
| The permissions listed are similar to symbolic mode specifications
| (*note Symbolic Modes::). But `ls' combines multiple bits into the
| third character of each set of permissions as follows:
| If the setuid or setgid bit and the corresponding executable
| bit are both set.
| If the setuid or setgid bit is set but the corresponding
| executable bit is not set.
| If the sticky bit and the other-executable bit are both set.
| If the sticky bit is set but the other-executable bit is not
| If the executable bit is set and none of the above apply.
