    I know you use the "Set Permissions" panel, but my CGI/PERL scripts tell me values like '0777' (drwxrwxrwx), and '0755' (-rwxr-xr-x). How do I know what check boxes to check (under the set permissions panel)?

    Thanks for the pointer, darien. I should also note that Fetch 4.0 automatically translates between the checkboxes and UNIX chmod numbers, so it's easy to see what you're getting.

    ...and if you use ProTERM (you can download a
    free 30-day eval), that ships with my chmod
    calculator, a GUI tool which works both
    forwards and backwards. It's cool!

    I'm working with version 3.03 of Fetch and there's no translation between checkboxes and chmod numbers on the set permissions menu. And there's no one home at the tutorial at
    http://webhelp.usit.net/tutorial/unixfile.html
    that Darien suggested. Is another tutorial or translator available?

    Thanks

    Searching for "chmod tutorial" on Google came up with:

    and a bunch of others.
