Shell scripting prerequisite #3

Methods of giving execution permission for your files { "su" , don't forget her}.

In LINUX , you own what yo create ,i.e the files you created belong to you.
In order to execute the file , you need to twiddle few bits to make it run on your machine.

This can be done using simple command called chmod.


Don't forget 421 { i used to remember it as 420 + 1 }
Why 420+1 ?? ==> Number-Words-Symbols-Cultural-History

4-> read (r)
2-> write(w)

chmod 777 *.* ==> gives you rwx rights on all the files , in the pwd.

You will get know , more one how to work with your scripts , in the next upcoming posts.
