chmod command


Hello everyone!

Can anyone help me in how to work the chmod command?
Suppose that you have a directory of udir12, a subdirectory udir121 (under udir12) and a file called file131 under directory udir121.

How do you change permission for the directory udir12 and all subdirectory and files to 770?

Can anyone help me out please!!!

Thanks
Carlos

With the recursive flag
Code:
chmod -R 770 udir12
