I have to add and change permissions on about 100 directories on a linux box. I would like to create a script to do this for me. Any ideas?

what are the names of the directories? If they are all foo-somethingelse then you can chmod 777 f00* and it will chmod all directories named foo-somehting or whatever your permissions are. The recursive -R switch changes the top level and all sublevel directories, so I guess it depends what you are actually trying to do.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
