What do you mean by numeric mode values? I don't think I've ever heard of that.

    "Numeric mode value" means the number you'd pass to an open() call, "which is an OR-ing of stuff like O_RDONLY and O_SYNC, constants you can import from POSIX" (for example from FUSE, see).

    Question is: how do I un-OR this stuff and get the matching symbol for what the ORed POSIX flags/constants mean.
