[ee122] Permissions

There are different permissions for 3 types of groups in unix.

User / Group / Others

Asking "ls -l" in my working directory lists something like this:

-rw-------   1 ee122-bz ee122        406 Oct  7 19:33 Makefile

Where each '-' corresponds to a denied permission, and the others
correspond to particular rights (i.e. 'r' means read).

My question is this:

At first I thought that I was to use the "others" permission status to
determine whether or not someone can read my private/diary.html

But when I create a file, I noticed that none of them have this
permission flagged (nither r,w, or x).

Am I supposed to use this "others" portion to determine permission
status, and if so, do I need to use chmod to change read status for
"others"? I don't really know (yet) how to do this.


PS (Quick Q)-> The specs do not say that if the server response is
anything but 200 OK, that the server should either close the
connection or keep it open. What is the correct behavior?
