NAME

shtool fixperm - GNU shtool file permission fixing command

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

shtool fixperm [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] path [path ...]

DESCRIPTION

shtool fixperm fixes file permissions inside a source tree under path by cleaning up the permission bits. It determines the cleaned up permission from the already set bits. It is intended to be run before a tarball is rolled (usually with shtool tarball) out of a source tree. The trick is that this is more convenient than having to set the permissions manually or by using a large file list.

OPTIONS

The following command line options are available.
-v, --verbose Display some processing information.
-t, --trace Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed.

EXAMPLE



 #   Makefile.in
 dist:
     shtool fixperm -v *
     ...



HISTORY

The GNU shtool fixperm command was originally written by Ralf S. Engelschall <rse@engelschall.com> in 1996 for OSSP eperl. It was later taken over into GNU shtool.
