Hi, Is there a class available for handling the Linux mode bits? i.e. Assuming I have the access mode of a file as a number, e.g. 33188 (octal: 0100644), can I test the mode bits? In Python I can use the 'stat' module which has all of the bits defined as well as tests like: S_ISREG(). Is there something analogous in Ruby? Thanks, Rob

Is there something analogous in Ruby? minimally, FIle.stat(filename).mode will give the file's mode bits as a Fixnum: 1.9.3-head :007 > "%o" % File.stat('.emacs').mode => "100644"

You can define your own which should be relatively stable if you are just working in a linux environment. For instance (but obviously not complete) # ruby, why you no expose these for my platform?!! # --- S_IFMT = 0170000 # bit mask for the file type bit fields S_IFDIR = 0040000 # directory S_ISUID = 0004000 # set UID bit S_ISGID = 0002000 # set-group-ID bit S_ISVTX = 0001000 # sticky bit S_IRUSR = 00400 # owner has read permission S_IWUSR = 00200 # owner has write permission S_IXUSR = 00100 # owner has execute permission S_IRGRP = 00040 # group has read permission S_IWGRP = 00020 # group has write permission S_IXGRP = 00010 # group has execute permission S_IROTH = 00004 # others have read permission S_IWOTH = 00002 # others have write permission S_IXOTH = 00001 # others have execute permission S_IMODE = 07777 # mask for user adjustable mode bits File.lstat('foo').mode & S_IFMT == S_IFDIR File.lstat('foo').mode & S_IMODE == S_IRUSR|S_IWUSR|S_IXUSR|S_IRGRP|S_IXGRP You could wrap it up in a nice module or class if you wanted.

OK. That's what I had assumed. Thanks, Rob

OK, so I've attached what I have...I think it works correctly :-) enjoy, Rob
