Say I have a long path such as:
I would like to run a command only on each of the subpaths of the path:
e.g. If my command is
cmd, I am looking for a one-liner that can do (perhaps using a one-line loop)
cmd /a cmd /a/b cmd /a/b/c cmd /a/b/c/d cmd /a/b/c/d/e cmd /a/b/c/d/e/f
One of the reasons why I need this (I need it for other things as well), is because I would like to give somebody from my unix group the ability to
cd incrementally her way to
/a/b/c/d/e/f. To do this, I think I need to run
chmod g+x on each of these subpaths (not sure if there is an alternative). Note that I want to avoid
chmod -R g+x /a.
I work primarily on zsh so I wonder if there is anything that takes advantage of specific zsh features.
