Not sure I understand what you want, but I'll throw in my 2 cents.

If you want command to change file permission:
$ chmod -R 777
This will recursively change every file and directory down the tree to world writable.  Some older chmod may not work w/ -R.

If you want a script to display file permission:
$ ls -Rl
This will display file permission recursively down the directory tree

But sounds like you want some sort of standard document for best practices on public drives?  You'll probably need to be more specific, like you mean for security purpose?  or you mean like the sticky bit use in /tmp (drwxrwxrwt)?

You have to examine "man find"
AIX has some extended attributes not in other systems, and also you can set no attributes and use ACL to give full access
