comment I accidentally chmod -R +x on a directory. How do I restore the correct permissions?
@David: About 10k files, with about 300 or so that were supposed to be executable. Only indication in the file name is shell scripts end with .sh and perl scripts end in .pl, but those I could tell from the #! at the start anyways.

Thanks! Fortunately, I think everything falls into these two categories. If this misses anything, I can deal with it later.

@xenoterracide: Agreed. What I really wanted was to give group same permissions as me (which did end up happening!), I just didn't do enough thinking before I typed.

I'm not worried so much about false positives as false negatives. There are binaries that I don't think start with #!.
