I'm going to tar up a few directories and scripts and I want to apply the chmod a+w+x to all files under the main directory and have those permissions apply recursively. Is there a way to do that with chmod? I know how to change and individual script file, but I tried chmod a+w+x and it didn't allow access to all users. I want to do this and then tar it up so that the person who untars it can run everything. Thanks for the help! This is for Linux 32 bit OS.
