I'm using MIME::Parser to extract data attachments from
email being sent to me at regular intervals. It's great,
and I need only one improvement (for a linux or solaris
The extracted file attachments are being written to disk
with owner-only access permissions (rwx------ (700) on
directories, and rw------- (600) on data files), and I
would prefer at least group-read/execute (750 for directories,
640 for data files) -- global read/execute access would
actually be better.
I went over the MIME::Parser and MIME::Parser::Filer man
pages, but did not see any relevant information.
What makes it troublesome is that, in the simplest case,
you don't really know what paths/files are being created until
MIME::Parser is done. You need to figure out afterwards which
directories were created, "chmod go+x" on those, then
"chmod -R go+r"... (I don't want to make the data files
executable.) It would just be a lot easier if the
mode flags could be set the way I want in the first place.
The man page for MIME::Parser::Filer says "you can easily
define your own subclass of MIME::Parser::Filer and override"
the default behavior, but an example (not provided there)
would be really helpful... THANKS!
