Dear All,

As a beginner I would like to know a thing in Unix. Can we hide a files from user who doesn't have any permissions(read/write/execute) under a directory?

I mean, by default a user can see all file names under any directory though he doesn't have read access. When he try to open/access the file only he will get error.

But i don't want such scenario in my Unix box. he shouldn't see any file names if he doesn't have any access.

Could anyone please explain how to achieve this?

Thank you in advance!!
