Hi,

I have a directory with drwx------ permissions.

Whenever I create a new find inside this directory, it has -rw-r--r-- permissions. I want it to be -rw------- by default.

Same with new directories that I create inside this dir: by default I want drwx------ instead of drwxr-xr-x.

Is there a way to change this?
I use tcsh.
Thanks!

Permissions on new files are set by the umask setting of the process creating the file, and not by any settings on the directory they're being created inside of.

To create flles that are -rw------- and directories that are drwx------, use 'umask 077'. You can issue this command directly from the command-line in the shell, or in a startup file such as .login/.profile.
