[REBOL] File-modes on different platforms
From: anton::lexicon::net at: 17-May-2002 17:38
I am interested to see the different file modes
available on different platforms.
I have tested on Windows2k and NT4.
I need Linux, Amiga, Mac and any others.
I would like you out there who have one of the above platforms to
try the following code and report back with the result.
save file: %anton-filemode-test "" ; create a file to experiment on
foreach mode get-modes %dummy 'file-modes [
type? get-modes file mode
if error? set/any 'err try [
set-modes file compose [
(to-set-word mode) (get-modes file mode)
][probe disarm err]
delete file ; clean up
The code just prints out the datatype of each mode,
the mode word, and reports if there was an error
setting that mode. (I want to see which modes cannot
be modified, if any.)
Thank you very much,
and thanks to Ammon for your response on this matter
on 20 April.
