Default permissions using umask: Linux: Files and Permissions

When files are created they automatically have permissions applied based on a default configuration setting called umask. Calculating the umask may seem inconsistent but as long as we know that maximum initial permissions on files will never have the execute bit set it makes more sense. Subtract the umask from the maximum initial permissions and you have the default permissions.
