Re: what is the num value of "s" in -rwsr-x--- (chmod)?

That means it is suid. It runs under the effective user id of the owner of the
file. To make it this way you do a 

chmod 4755 foo.pl

I am sure there are more details to this, so consult the man pages for more 
info. (Maybe I should say consult the info pages :)
