1)  Leave the individual files 'wide open' but secure the parent 
directory.
2)  Use the CHGAUT like 
CHGAUT OBJ('/mydir/*') USER(NEWUSER) DTAAUT(*RWX) OBJAUT(*ALL)
works great with wild cards.
3)  Secure the files with an authorization list and just add/subtract 
users from the authorization list.
4)  If you have nested directories you are in for a bit of work.  Unless 
you went graduated from iSeries commands -> ifs commands -> and now unix 
commands and can now figure out how to nest these commands.  I haven't 
quite made that jump, yet.  At least the ifs commands had some resemblance 
to the iSeries commands.  Who can figure out what 'grep' stands for?
5)  I tried the iSeries Navigator method.  I highlighted two ifs files and 
clicked on permissions.  It brought up the screens en masse versus one 
screen that applied to all the objects within.  You don't want to go that 
route.  Sort of like the difference between 
5a) WRKSPLF using a 2 on several spool files and
5b) WRKSPLF using a 2, BUT entering DEV(myprinter) on the command line 
before enter.
Sounds like something in need of a DCR.
