If there a way to "chmod 777" recursively, like the -r option on rm?
I'm not on a Mac right now. But "man chmod" on the Solaris server I am logged into says
" -R Recursively descends through directory arguments, set-
ting the mode for each file as described above. When
symbolic links are encountered, the mode of the target
file is changed, but no recursion takes place."
Note that's -R not -r.
-R on OSX 10.6 says: "Change the modes of the file hierarchies rooted in the files instead of just the files themselves."
Is this the same thing? Solaris is unix-like, so it should be the same thing, right?
Solaris is not unix-like. It is Unix. Linux is unix-like. And yes, the above is a different way of stating the same thing in less plain, but still understandable, English.
