Re: umask is different in 8.0

Yeah.. I thought so too... .. file must have existed before?

Perhaps a dumb question but...

In this example, shouldn't the permissions of 'foo' be rwxrwxrwx with a
umask of 000 unless foo was a pre-existing file?  Your permissions are
what I would expect with a umask of 111, but it works the same here (as
your example).

But when a new child process spawns (say a shell script), the umask is
not inherited.  Is there a fix for that?

I can't duplicate that either. [jkeating yoda temp]$ umask 000 [jkeating yoda temp]$ ./script 0000 Touching foo

total 20
drwxrwxr-x    3 jkeating jkeating     4096 Dec 19 12:11 .
drwx------   97 jkeating jkeating     8192 Dec 19 12:10 ..
-rw-rw-rw-    1 jkeating jkeating        0 Dec 19 12:11 foo

[jkeating yoda temp]$ cat script # !/bin/sh

echo `umask`
echo "Touching foo"
touch foo
ls -al

exit 0
