How to... read file permissions?

 [1/3] from: al::bri::xtra::co::nz at: 20-Jul-2002 19:11

I can make a file read only with:
>> write/allow %Test.txt "Test is read only" [read]
And to check:
>> delete %Test.txt
** Access Error: Cannot delete Test.txt ** Where: throw-on-error ** Near: delete %Test.txt Now I read a random file:
>> read %"Random File.txt"
== "Hello! I'm a random file!^/" How can I find out through Rebol (without writing to %"Random File.txt" and potentially destroying it's contents) if the file is read only? Andrew Martin Read-ing & Write-ing the Rebolution... ICQ: 26227169

Re: How to... read file permissions? - get-modes & set-modes

Hi Andrew, get-modes is what you want:
>> get-modes %user.r 'file-modes
== [creation-date access-date modification-date owner-write archived hidden system]
>> get-modes %user.r [owner-write] ; a block, so you can get several at a
time == [owner-write: true] There is also 'set-modes. Also check out: Anton.
