i got sick of using chmod everytime i wrote a new script
so i wrote a script to do it for me
# Author: Joshua Bailey
# Name: exe
# Syntax: exe path/filename
# Make a file executable for all
# Not safe for user sensitive files
# if there aren't any parameters when you execute the script
if [[ $# < 1 ]]
echo "You must specify a file!"
# if the parameter you specify exists
if [[ ! -e $1 ]]
echo $1 "does not exist, or you didn't type the correct path."
chmod ugo+x $1
echo $1 "is now executable."
PM me for the xexe script (it removes the execute param for all users)
