shtool fixperm [-v|--verbose] [-t|--trace] path [path ...]
shtool fixperm fixes file permissions inside a source tree under path
by cleaning up the permission bits. It determines the cleaned up
permission from the already set bits. It is intended to be run before a
tarball is rolled (usually with shtool tarball) out of a source tree.
The trick is that this is more convenient than having to set the
permissions manually or by using a large file list.
The following command line options are available.

The GNU shtool fixperm command was originally written by Ralf S.
Engelschall <email@example.com> in 1996 for OSSP eperl. It was later
taken over into GNU shtool.
