Won't work. Non-apache-related-example: % id -u 1000 % ls /etc/master.passwd /etc/master.passwd % less /etc/master.passwd /etc/master.passwd: Permission denied You need to actually read the file - something like `dd if=somefile.txt of=/dev/null' should work. -- Josh > > as root. > > -- > Jez > > http://www.munk.nu/ > _______________________________________________ > [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]" _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
