Use and security needs define the permission you need to set.
For making a rebol script executable on a Unix/Linux system, yes it is very
common to use
chmod 755 somescript.r
As well as the script permsissions itself, you may need to pay attention to the
permissions for teh folder the script lives. Managing the owner and group a file
or folder is essential too for many uses.
It is very worth while to study up on, and experiment with permission settings.
They are crucial to make sure FTP software will work properly and Apache in
cgi-bin, or if you when other programs need to use your rebol scripts. Also when
reading and writing from data files which rebol is creating or sharing. In rebol
there is no hard line between data and programs. It is a continuum so the use is
imporant to define which permissions to assign for rebol scripts.
There are many handy tutorials in books and online.
Here's a couple which may help you:
