Re: permissions of symlink()

This does not work in 10.4.6

ls -l *.txt
-rwxr-xr-x   1 rosyna  rosyna  10 Jun  7 11:53 filemac.txt

ls: softlink.txt: Permission denied
l---------   1 rosyna  rosyna  11 Jun  7 11:53 softlink.txt

I'm using 10.3 here, which might make the difference, but the
following, run from the terminal, works exactly as expected:
$ umask 0777
$ ln -s filemac.txt softlink.txt
$ ls -l *.txt
