Thanks a lot
Umask is xterm dependent and by logout it will not act any more. I think there must be a special file which I have to edit and then I can change the permission for all xterm windows permanently.

After chmod you might try a 'rehash'
I am not reallt sure what your problem is ?

If you are using the bourne or bourne-again shells (sh or bash), you can add it to .profile or .bash_profile in your home directory. I believe the korn shell (ksh) will be able to read the .profile as well.

When I touch a file the permission which is assigned is 644 by deffault and I am looking to a way that the created file has the 754 as my own default independent of the xterm window or without using umask or chmod. By the way I am using Solaris 8.
Is it possible?

I don't think umask will let you default to creating files with any execute bit set. I don't know of any other way than either using umask or chmod to set perms on your files.

The closest I could get to what you want is:
echo "umask 023" >> .profile

After you log out, then log in again, your new files will still have 644 permissions - no execute bit. - Sorry.
