#!/usr/bin/python import os, sys # Open a file path = "/var/www/html/foo.txt" fd = os.open( path, os.O_RDWR|os.O_CREAT ) # Close opened file os.close( fd ) # Now change the file mode. # Set a file execute by group. os.lchmod( path, stat.S_IXGRP) # Set a file write by others. os.lchmod("/tmp/foo.txt", stat.S_IWOTH) print "Changed mode successfully!!"
When we run above program, it produces following result:
print "Changed mode successfully!!"
