shtool fixperm - GNU shtool file permission fixing command
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.
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.
shtool fixperm -v *
The GNU shtool fixperm command was originally written by Ralf S.
Engelschall <[email protected]> in 1996 for OSSP eperl.
It was later taken over into GNU shtool.
