The standard listing shows permissions in owner-group-all format rather than a bitmask. To see the permissions of files in a numeric way, use this:

stat -c %a %n *

Note that the double quotation marks (ASCII 34) in Staff's post have been turned into curly quotation marks. This may frustrate you if you're trying to copy and paste the example on to your command line.

stat is a thoroughly useful command when ls -l isn't telling you enough.
