shop: A tool to show permissions at every level in a path.
shop is a simple bash script that tries to be the compliment of tree. tree starts at a trunk and shows all paths that originate from that trunk, optionally showing permissions. Conversely, shop starts at a leaf and shows the permissions back to a trunk. This is very useful when battling permissions issues with web servers or shared directories, for instance.
- Arch Linux - clone the repo and run makepkg -i in the root directory
- Others - Drop shop somewhere in your $PATH
Usage: shop [-L N] [-o] [-p N] [-t PATH] [PATH1..] Options: -L N, --level N traverse N levels up the tree -o, --octal show octal mode instead of human readable mode -p N, --pad N allow USER:GROUP N characters before path name - default: 17 (8 character user and group) -t PATH, --trunk PATH only traverse up to PATH instead of / (root) - takes precedence over --level -h, --help show this help message --version show version info
