quick ADB question - change permissions on multiple files
I haven't done this since I had the Droid 1, so I'm a little rusty and can't find it via search (yet anyway...)
I'm trying to change permissions on multiple files within a directory at once, to 644... I remember it was something like chmod -R etc etc... but can't remember the details
can anybody help?
EDIT: figured it out... was closer than I thought - for anyone curious, in Terminal Emulator anyway, it's simply busybox chmod -R 644 /directory/subdir/etc/* to change everything in the /etc directory to 644

chmod -R 644 "whatever directory/file names" gives you recursive
chmod 644 *.whatever gives you a group of files with the same extension
chmod 644 whatever* gives you a matching file name from the specified prefix and the extension can be anything.
