Unix File Access Right

Hi all,

I am curious what does this mean for? My file access right is denoted as
xxx xxx xxx +, what does the + sign mean?
As I am having + sign in file access, I am not able to copy the file that is having + sign. Thanks.

It means that these files have Access Control Lists set (ACL)

What does the ACL means? How am I get rid of the + sign then?

Old 10-04-2011
ACL means Access Control Lists, i.e. an extension to the traditional owner/group/other read/write/execute file permissions.

How to get rid of them depends on your OS.

If you tell us exactly which operating system and filesystem type you are using, we can advice you how to turn off ACLs.
