What does chmod 1777 mean?

Question:

What does chmod 1777 on a folder mean?
I know that chmod 777 means read/write/execute for everybody. What is the purpose of the additional '1'?

Answer:

The 1 is the "stickc bit". If you perform an ls -l on that folder, you will see a 't' next to it.
The sticky bit 't' means:
'do not let anyone delete this folder or change it's permissions'
