RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for access (redhat section 1)

ACCESS(1)			     General Commands Manual				ACCESS(1)

NAME
       access - determine whether a file can be accessed

SYNOPSIS
       access -mode file

DESCRIPTION
       Exit  successfully  if  file can be accessed with the specified mode.  mode is one or more
       letters of rwx, where r is for readable, w is for writable, and x is for executable.

       The difference between access and test is that the latter looks at  the	permission  bits,
       while  the  former  checks  using the access(2) system call.  This makes a difference when
       file systems have been mounted read-only.

OPTIONS
       access accepts the following additional options:

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --version
	      Print version information and exit.
