    Hi Mike,

    Sorry if I vaguely stated my case. By 'hidden', I meant, it cannot be
    listed using any listing utilities (eg, ls and find). But the file is
    there. It can be accessed (read from and written to) if done by
    specifying the file. Eg,

    cat ~/file

    will dump the contents of 'file'. The command

    ls

    will not show, but, doing

    ls ~/file

    will.

    Is there a way I can get around this? And, (again), how was this made
    possible?

    Thanks for the replies and I'm hoping for more.

    mat
