I was looking for another program for my Palm Zire 72 and found this cool little freeware program.
"chmod.zip"
Download it here:
http://www.freewarepalm.com/utilities/chmod.shtml
Here's a brief description:
----------------------------------------------
chmod is a simple application, used to calculate the often confusing *nix chmod command.
This command is used for assigning rights to files, for example: "chmod 777 filea.txt" would grant read, write and execute rights to everyone for this file.
For more info on the chmod command itself, check any basic *nix reference guide.
Hopefully, if you have a use for this program, chmod will make determining and setting *nix file rights a little easier.
----------------------------------------------

This would be cool if there was a proggie similar that would run on the Zaurus

I used to use a Dashboard Widget on my Mac to calculate these for my Z until I bought Tree!Explorer+. The graphical rights assignment it has is addicting. Check off run as Root and you are deadly. cool.gif

Thank you HoloVector, I do use that function of Tree!Explorer. It has been handy in getting some software to work that doesn't assign write rights to it's data or config files, or in the case of some games in the genesis emulator, I had to change permissions in 2 folders to get the save game feature to work.
I'm still a Linux newbie and still don't quite understand the group usage of certain files. I don't usually mess with the group assignment in Tree!Explorer though.

chmod on the Z (and most chmods these days) accepts symbolic modes, so there's no need to calculate the octal modes

I think I actually downloaded this once. smile.gif

Anyway, my wife says that I'm a geek, and I had a little time to kill after dinner... Since I wouldn't want to prove her wrong, I wrote a silly little bash script. Not as elegant as the GUI app, but there are also no dependencies except an open shell.

Whether or not this is useful to anyone, it amused me. (And I haven't even had anything to drink!)

Also, while you can use symbolic modes, of course, I find the 3-digit octal code to be faster and easier to type.
