Hi there,

Sorry, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.  Using the ls -la 
command, I get a listing of the files in my directory.  However, I have 
files with a "+" sign after their permissions.  What does this mean?  It 
doesn't seem to show up in ls examples  on the web.

ls -la
-rwx------+ 1 testuser Admin     25600 Jul 12 02:04 rmic.exe
-rwx------+ 1 testuser Admin     25600 Jul 12 02:04 rmid.exe

           ^

	what is this + for?

thanks,
