Change file permissions

file_chmod(path, mode)

Arguments

path

A character vector of one or more paths.

mode

A character representation of the mode, in either hexidecimal or symbolic format.

Details

Cross-compatibility warning: File permissions differ on Windows from POSIX systems. Windows does not use an executable bit, so attempting to change this will have no effect. Windows also does not have user groups, so only the user permissions (u) are relevant.

Examples

file_create("foo", mode = "000") file_chmod("foo", "777") file_info("foo")$permissions
#> [1] rwxrwxrwx
file_chmod("foo", "u-x") file_info("foo")$permissions
#> [1] rw-rwxrwx
file_chmod("foo", "a-wrx") file_info("foo")$permissions
#> [1] ---------
file_chmod("foo", "u+wr") file_info("foo")$permissions
#> [1] rw-------
# It is also vectorized files <- c("foo", file_create("bar", mode = "000")) file_chmod(files, "a+rwx") file_info(files)$permissions
#> [1] rwxrwxrwx rwxrwxrwx
file_chmod(files, c("644", "600")) file_info(files)$permissions
#> [1] rw-r--r-- rw-------
