Re: when I try to open file with another user on CYGWIN , I get access denied message

Did you try
   chmod 755 foo.dat
on the file (assuming it's named foo.dat)?

umask 002 would have done that for you if you'd done it before
creating the file.

It's a bit odd to have +x set on a data file, so if it's not a dll or
exe, you might
want to make it chmod 644 instead.
