       shtool-fixperm - GNU shtool file permission fixing command

       shtool fixperm [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] path [path ...]

       shtool fixperm fixes file permissions inside a source tree under path by cleaning up the
       permission bits. It determines the cleaned up permission from the already set bits. It is
       intended to be run before a tarball is rolled (usually with shtool tarball) out of a
       source tree. The trick is that this is more convenient than having to set the permissions
       manually or by using a large file list.

       The following command line options are available.

       -v, --verbose
	   Display some processing information.

       -t, --trace
	   Enable the output of the essential shell commands which are executed.

	#   Makefile.in
	    shtool fixperm -v *

       The GNU shtool fixperm command was originally written by Ralf S.  Engelschall
       <rse@engelschall.com> in 1996 for OSSP eperl.  It was later taken over into GNU shtool.

       shtool(1), chmod(1).
