Example: Manage File Permissions Using Sys.chmod() Function
In this example, I’ll show how to specify the permission for a file on your computer using the Sys.chmod command.
Within the Sys.chmod function, we have to set the working directory path where the file is located, and we have to define the mode of permission for this file.
Have a look at the following R code:
Sys.chmod("C:/Users/Joach/Desktop/my directory/my file.txt", # Apply Sys.chmod function mode = "0777")
The previous R syntax has set the file permission for a TXT called “my file.txt”. We can change the permissions for this file by switching the mode. Learn more about different permission modes here.
