Question Permissions Question?

How do change permissions on a groups of files and directories? I know chmod, but forgot the option to specify groupings.

chmod +775 *.mp3

chmod +700 foo.mp3 bar.wav

-R <- recursive changing of permissions

man chmod

If your wondering how to change the group ownership, that would be the chgrp command.

man chgrp

Ownership would be chown, just in case for anyone else out there that might benefit as well.
