issticky(path) -> Bool

Returns true if path has the sticky bit set, false otherwise.


  1. Check if a file has the sticky bit set:

    julia> issticky("/path/to/file.txt")

    This example checks if the file at /path/to/file.txt has the sticky bit set. It returns false indicating that the sticky bit is not set.

  2. Check if a directory has the sticky bit set:

    julia> issticky("/path/to/directory")

    This example checks if the directory at /path/to/directory has the sticky bit set. It returns true indicating that the sticky bit is set.

  3. Handle non-existent paths:
    julia> issticky("/non/existent/path")

    It returns false for non-existent paths since a non-existent path cannot have the sticky bit set.

Common mistake example:

julia> issticky("/path/to/file.txt", "/another/file.txt")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching issticky(::String, ::String)

In this example, the function is called with more than one argument. The issticky function expects only one argument, which is the path to check. Make sure to provide only the path as a single argument when using the issticky function.
