Changing File Attributes
You can change the file attributes (mode, group, owner) of marked files.
(`dired-do-chmod') Change the mode (also called "permission bits")
of the marked files. This calls the `chmod' program, thus
symbolic modes like `g+w' are allowed.
Multiple switches like `-fR g+w' are not understood, though. Use
`!' (`dired-do-shell-command') for that.
(`dired-do-chgrp') Change the group of the marked files.
(`dired-do-chown') Change the owner of the marked files. This
usually works for the superuser only. It uses the program in the
variable `dired-chown-program' to do the change.
