thank you for your answer. But, This isn't my problem.
What you have cited from the man page I know very well and it's my
everyday use.
Instead, if you go to "list view" in Nautilus and set "show octal
permissions", you get 6 digits for files and 7 digits for
directories. Say, 600750. 750 OK, but what is the meaning of 600?
That, the digits _before_ the UNIX permissions, is it what I ask for.
I would be really glad if I get a hint.

Kind regards,
