For some reason, since I set up my new machine, when I p4 sync I would get directories that aren’t writeable. This means that lzx files won’t compile since the swf needs to be written into the directory.
To work-around this, I tried to just set permissions on all the directories. My first attempt (below), didn’t work…. anyone know why? the second one is more verbose and did work.
$ find * -type d | chmod a+w
chmod: missing operand after `a+w’
Try `chmod –help’ for more information.
$ for i in * ; do if [ -d $i ]; then chmod a+w $i ; fi ; done
A better answer: the chmod command does not accept arguments on stdin, so you can’t just pipe a file list to it:
$ find . -type d -print0 | xargs -0 chmod a+w
xargs is your friend
