Well, better  try all these commands in a terminal and
you'll know quickly :

in a terminal do :

> echo 123 > test

> umask 666
> echo 345 > test2

> ls -l test*
-rw-rw-rw-   1 tdz  staff     4 17 jan 08:38 test
----------   1 tdz  staff     4 17 jan 08:38 test2

I did this in a shell with the terminal app., and on a Mac !
So ,the answer is YES :)

MacOsX is a Unix based system, most of the shell commands
are there... with subtle differences from Unix to Unix to Linux versions,
but most of the time, it just works the same.
