Re: [RESOLVED] Re: [vox-tech] Shell Scripting Question: Getting a directory name from a 'find' result


Thanks for the suggestions.  I've incorporated them into the script.  I
don't program in Perl nearly as often as I'd like to; I'd forgotten how
fun it is.  Heh.

You may be right about this.  I checked the documentation for wwwboard on
Matt's Script Archive, and it said to chmod wwwboard.html to 777 there but
666 is probably sufficient.  I'll give it a try.

wwwboard is not my first choice of software for this particular situation.
 Unfortunately, it's what we've got, and the Powers that Be here are wary
of converting to a better solution since we have so many files that were
created by wwwboard.
