    Reclusivly remove execution privilege to a folder for a group


    Is it possible to just remove execution privilege to a folder and everything in it for a group, without touching anything else.

    chmod 760 -R /directory is not an option in this case, hence why I have asked this question.

    Take a read down the manual page for 'chmod'. You need to use the 'g-x' incantation, but probably don't want the leading slash on your directory name. I'm not going to provide a more detailed answer as this is a lot like a homework question.

    You are clearly a lazy, feckless and ungrateful individual who is content to sit on your arse and leech off the good will and hard work of others, without putting in any effort yourself. If you think you're going to learn from this approach, think again.
