Unix Tip #4293- December 12, 2012

CHMOD FILES NOT DIRS


Sometimes bringing files from another
filesystem (ie. fat32) while have the
execute bit "x" set on all files and
directories. To remove execute permission
on normal files, while leaving the 'x'
permission on sub-directories the
following can be used:

find ./ -type f | xargs chmod a-x
