This question already has an answer here:
I've got a folder that has 0600 chmod permission and this folder has a sh script. I'm trying to limit some permissions but I've realized that if the folder has not a execute permission, unless for the user, I can't access using cd command, so that I can't execute my script. The script has the proper permission (0700)
Is this right? I don't understand why. Could anybody explain me the function of execute permission in folders?
Thanks a lot!
