Here's a script that shows how to use stat to get what you're looking for and an example invocation.

$ cat fileperm #!/usr/bin/perl my $filename = 'fileperm'; my $mode = (stat $filename)[2]; $mode = $mode & 07777; # mask off file type; my $usr = ($mode & 0700) >> 6; my $grp = ($mode & 0070) >> 3; my $oth = $mode & 0007; printf "$filename has permissions %04o (%i,%i,%i)\n", $mode, $usr, $gr +p, $oth; $ ./fileperm fileperm has permissions 0775 (7,7,5) $ ls -l fileperm -rwxrwxr-x 1 chicks chicks 289 Apr 21 11:32 fileperm

print "Testing File: $test_file\n"; my ( $mode, $uid ) = (stat( $test_file ))[2,4] or die "Stat failed.\n" +; my ( $ownername ) = getpwuid $uid; print "File is owned by '$ownername'\n"; my $ms = 'xwrxwrxwr'; my $modestring; for ( 0..8 ) { if ( $mode & ( 2 ** $_ ) ) { $modestring = substr( $ms, $_ , 1 ) . $modestring; } else { $modestring = '-' . $modestring; } } print "File permissions are $modestring\n";
