When I CHMOD a file in FPT client, it changed to this drwxr-sr-x or -rw-r--r--r or drwxr-xr-x. Can anyone tell me what the "drwxr" "sr" "x" "rw" or "r" means for a directory with the permissions?

d = directory
r = read able
w = writable
x = executable
s = setuid bit, which tells the OS to execute that program with the userid of its owner

-rwxr--r--r means read write and execute permissions for the owner read for the group and read for other users.
