Can anyone tell me what I've done wrong? On the top of page 90 the book indicates that I should get a 'Permission denied' response. I don't get this response, instead it lists THIS:

Many thanks. This is a great book. I wish I read it much earlier as it would have saved me hours and hours!

Don't worry. The text editor sometimes gives the file executable permission automatically when you save. You just can't rely on it.

Thanks for mentioning this. We added a note to the Errata page.
