    Hello,
    I have a few folders with quite complex folder structures. ( I know all the files inside are safe)

    all i want to do is make all the .sh files in those folders executable.

    i know how to make a single file executable: chmod 775 (location and name go here)

    edit: think ive just sorted it.

    chmod 775 -R (location) and that command makes all files inside executable.

    find . -type f -name '*.sh' -print0 | xargs -0 chmod 775

    I hope it works. I am new to UNIX :)
