Exploit programming and SetUID

Im learning how to program , find and explore exploits. This question is gonna sound lame but how do i set the SUID bit on a program so that when a normal executes it and exploits it , it will make them root.

Basicly what is the chmod command to make a program SUID

although SUID just means that when the programme is executed it will only run as the the id of whatever the owner of the file is.
