Is it possibile to set up hidden files on Unix? Not the fies starts with a '.'.
nope. not that im aware of. why u want to hide the file? if you hide the file people still can see the file when he/she run the find command. even though you use "." . unless you change permission on the folder and file.

The following situation exists on the Unix directory property. I started to feel curious about it. It looks like the following list.
$ ls -ld
drwxr-x--- 2 oracle dba 13824 Apr 16 15:00 adir
$ cd adir
$ ls -l
$ ls -la
drwxr-x--- 2 oracle dba 13824 Apr 16 15:00 .
drwxr-x--- 3 oracle dba 512 Apr 16 14:42 ..
Do you see anything on the above listing? Can you explain why the "total" is displayed as 0 and 30 while no files were shown on the screen? BTW, how the "13824" was calculated on the '.' ?
