Following the file mode bits is a single character that specifies
whether an alternate access method such as an access control list
applies to the file. When the character following the file mode
bits is a space, there is no alternate access method. When it is
a printing character, then there is such a method.
For a file with an extended access control list, a `+' character is
listed. Basic access control lists are equivalent to the
permissions listed, and are not considered an alternate access
