Question Chmod command


Hi,

I use redhat 7.3. I have a directory which has a lot of sub-directories and files.

How can I type one command on console window to change all these sub-directories and files' user mode and permission?

e.g. all of them have the user name "userA" and permission "755". I want to change them to be "userB" and permission "777".

How can I do it in one command?

Thanks

gogo

you can't you need to cmod them and then chown them. the -R flag makes it recursive, but then you knew that already cos you've read the mapage right?
