In OS X 10.4.9, Ruby 1.8.4 when I use:
The directories created are drop-box, owner-only.
It seems the Dir class expects the leading bit.
So, it should be 0755 and not 755.
Without permissions, it appears to default to 0755.
Just thought this might be useful for some people.
Seems like I read this in the Pickaxe, but I forgot.
It is interesting, since chmod accepts 755 and assumes you mean 0755
Seems to me that Dir should do the same assuming… but doesn’t
