What is INODE?..

Answer / manas behera

When a file system is created, data structures that contain
information about files are created. Each file has an inode
and is identified by an inode number (often "i-number" or
even shorter, "ino") in the file system where it resides.
Inodes store information on files such as user and group
ownership, access mode (read, write, execute permissions)
and type of file. There is a fixed number of inodes, which
indicates the maximum number of files each filesystem can

A file's inode number can be found using the ls -i command,
while the ls -l command will retrieve inode information.
