Unix Permissions Calculator Released

8 years, 3 months ago

Over at Project Fondue we've just released a new tool - Permissions Calculator. If you always had trouble understanding how Unix file permissions worked then this is the tool for you.

It allows you to specify the permissions you need by ticking checkboxes and it then generates the correct octal code for use with chmod. Alternatively supply it with an octal code and it'll provide a breakdown of what permissions that code corresponds to. The URL of the breakdown is bookmarkable making it easy to share with other people or to cross link from online documentation.

Additionally the tool can generate the symbolic values needed to added permissions to an existing, base permissions set.
