How Plastic handles execute file permission?


Recommended Posts

Plastic seems to be aware of file permissions, at least on Linux and macOs where it applies.

I have found that if you first check out the file, and then `chmod +x` it then plastic will detect the change and bring include the flag when you check it in. When another user updates their workspace your changeset they will get the file with the `+x` flag.

If I recall correctly it was a bit hard to see in the UI before it was checked in, but if you review a changeset after it has been checked in you will see a yellow info-bar over the diff view of each file that say

Files are identical. Filesystem permissions changed from NOT_DEFINED to -r-xr-xr-x

Hope this helps,
