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.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
