Question Changing persmissions for output file in UNIX box with SQR.

I am trying to change permissions on an output file from an sqr. The file is pushed out into a directory on the unix box. I am using the following code in the sqr to accomplish this.

if $OUTPUT <> ''
let $unix_call = 'chmod 664 '||$OUTPUT
show $unix_call
CALL SYSTEM Using $unix_call #unix_status wait
end-if

This worked in version 7 SQR, but since we have upgraded to version 8 this does not succesfully change permissions on the file in the unix box. I am not sure whether something has changed from a command standpoint or not. Does anyone have any suggestions on what could be causing this not to work?

umask

You might be getting some influence from the umask environmental variable. See if umask is set and if so what is the umask setting. (man umask)
