Following is the syntax for fchmod() method:
This method does not return any value.
The following example shows the usage of fchmod() method:
#!/usr/bin/python import os, sys, stat # Now open a file "/tmp/foo.txt" fd = os.open( "/tmp", os.O_RDONLY ) # Set a file execute by the group. os.fchmod( fd, stat.S_IXGRP) # Set a file write by others. os.fchmod(fd, stat.S_IWOTH) print "Changed mode successfully!!" # Close opened file. os.close( fd )
When we run the above program, it produces the following result:
Changed mode successfully!!
