Will i see a file/dir I don't have read access to

Hi all,

if I have a dir with a mixture of files and directories in it and one of the directories *only* has read permission for the owner and I am not the owner - will I see it with an 'ls -la'.

I do not have access to a unix box at present to try this out.

Any thoughts gratefully received

Yes, you will see it in a directory listing.
