Special permissions rather than "alter permissions"
File permissions are thus represented with nine bits. The three most significant representing the owner rights and the three least significant representing others rights. For instance, a typical file permission is <code>640</code> which means <q style="font-style:italic">The owner can read an write, the group have a read-only access, and other can't even read it</q>.
=== Alter Special permissions meaning ===
There is actually three more bits that allow you to alter the meaning of other permissionsenable special behaviors.
