( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
So I learnt that '0755' has a numerical value of decimal 755, whereas 0755 has a numerical value of octal 755. Worth knowing. And now I fixed my script and it does exactly what I want and I'm very happy. Thanks to eveyrone.
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use CGI qw(:standard); print header, start_html( -title=>'CHMOD UTILITY' ); &do_chmod if param; &send_form; sub do_chmod { my $Perm; if (param('Action') eq 'Not Executable') { $Perm = 0644; } else { $Perm = 0755; } for (param('Dirs')) { my @files; push @files, $_ while <$_*.p*>; if (chmod $Perm, @files) { print "Changed permissions on " . join(" ; ",@files) . " t +o " . $Perm . "<BR>"; } else { print "Could not change perms on " . join(" ; ",@files) . +" to " . $Perm . "<BR>"; } } print "DONE"; } sub send_form { my @dirs; push @dirs, $_ while <../*/>; print startform( -name=>'mainform', -method=>'POST', -action=>'chmod.pl', ), checkbox_group( 'Dirs', [@dirs], [], 1, ), submit( -name=>'Action', -value=>'Executable', ), submit( -name=>'Action', -value=>'Not Executable', ), endform, end_html; }

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
