     CALL ChMod(Name, Mode, Status)

Name: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).

Mode: CHARACTER; scalar; INTENT(IN).


Intrinsic groups: unix.


Changes the access mode of file Name according to the specification Mode, which is given in the format of chmod(1). A null character (`CHAR(0)') marks the end of the name in Name—otherwise, trailing blanks in Name are ignored. Currently, Name must not contain the single quote character.

If the Status argument is supplied, it contains 0 on success or a nonzero error code upon return.

Note that this currently works by actually invoking /bin/chmod (or the chmod found when the library was configured) and so might fail in some circumstances and will, anyway, be slow.

Some non-GNU implementations of Fortran provide this intrinsic as only a function, not as a subroutine, or do not support the (optional) Status argument.
