Exploring /bin - Part 2 - Getfacl through Pwd

Filed under
HowTos

Welcome to part 2 of our short series on exploring the /bin directory. Today we'll be looking at another set of tools that are useful to you, including the ever well known and commonly used pwd.

GETFACL
Getfacl is a simple tool that you may find uses for when dealing with sandboxes, ACL's, and other security systems that you may employ on your Linux or BSD box. Typically getfacl is used when looking up access control lists on a file. It will display the file name, owner, group, and any access control lists (ACL) active on the file. Aside from those couple of uses, it really doesn't do much. But, when in a pinch and you need this info, it's priceless.

This list has over time contained some definite high-priority projects related to freeing Java and Adobe PDF support and open graphics drivers to some more obscure projects of high priority like a free version of Oracle Forms, a replacement to OpenDWG libraries for CAD files, automatic transcription software, etc. I've personally called out many of the FSF HPP for what they're worth with my thoughts over the years.
