Because of the default umask settings on my systems, file permissions always default to no access for group and other. This is fine typically but annoying when I'm installing software that I need others to access. Is there a quick way I can reset permissions of all files and folders in a tree after an install based on the use permissions.
Basically copy user except for write.
rwx------ to rwxr-xr-x rw------- to rw-r--r--
