NAME

File::chmod::Recursive - Run chmod recursively against directories

DESCRIPTION

Like File::chmod, but recursive with selective permissions

SYNOPSIS

    use File::chmod::Recursive;  # Exports 'chmod_recursive' by default

    # Apply identical permissions to everything
    #   Similar to chmod -R
    chmod_recursive( 0755, '/path/to/directory' );

    # Apply permissions selectively
    chmod_recursive(
        {
            dirs  => 0755,       # Mode for directories
            files => 0644,       # Mode for files

            # Match both directories and files
            match => {
                qr/\.sh|\.pl/ => 0755,
                qr/\.gnupg/   => 0600,
            },

            # You can also match files or directories selectively
            match_dirs  => { qr/\/logs\//    => 0775, },
            match_files => { qr/\/bin\/\S+$/ => 0755, },
        },
        '/path/to/directory'
    );

FUNCTIONS

chmod_recursive(MODE, $path)
chmod_recursive(\%options, $path)

This function accepts two parameters. The first is either a MODE or an options hashref. The second is the directory to work on. It returns the number of files successfully changed, similar to chmod.

When using a hashref for selective permissions, the following options are valid -

    {
        dirs  => MODE,  # Default Mode for directories
        files => MODE,  # Default Mode for files

        # Match both directories and files
        match => { qr/<some condition>/ => MODE, },

        # Match files only
        match_files => { qr/<some condition>/ => MODE, },

        # Match directories only
        match_dirs => { qr/<some condition>/ => MODE, },

        # Follow symlinks. OFF by default
        follow_symlinks => 0,

        # Depth first tree walking. ON by default (default _find_ behavior)
        depth_first => 1,
    }

In all cases the MODE is whatever File::chmod accepts.

rchmod
chmodr

This is an alias for chmod_recursive and is exported only on request.
