I don't understand how nethack can store the score in
the real binary is here /usr/local/lib/nethack/nethack
And the mode is
-rwxr-sr-x 1 games games 1793635 25 Jan 2011
So that means people in games group will run nethack as games user
(owner of file) but I'm not in games group ! and I can save the file
/usr/local/lib/nethack/logfile which mode is -rw-rw-r-- games games
I'm writing a game that will store file too, because I can't make it
works like nethack I was planning using the setuid mode but I don't like
much this ..
What am I misunderstanding?
