I would like to do the following:
chmod +x filename.txt
without using the terminal. Is there a way to bypass the terminal and invoke a kernel system call ? I'd rather not write a program to do this. Instead I was wondering if I could somehow simulate a terminal with (perhaps) an application besides terminal to invoke system calls.
I have already tried doing Command Key + i on the file to show the information GUI. However there is no option for setting the execute bit.
Would appreciate help from os x administrator experts in the community.
