This I alluded to when I discussed learning the unix, or QSHELL, way.  The 
unix way will allow you to drill down the various directories.  How to do 
that would be best pointed out by the QSHELL experts on the list.

Re: OPS Navigator multiple file permissions

Steve and Rob:

Thanks for your tips. This command works fine for an
explicitly shared object, or a group of objects at the
end of a wildcard path.

grants or removes authority for "JOE" on shared object
"MANUALS" (a folder).

grants or removes authority for "JOE" on objects
immediately under "MANUALS", but not "MANUALS" itself.

The second command doesn't affect objects further down
the path, so to grant authority for objects in a
folder called "/MANUALS/REDBOOKS", it seems I have to
issue another CHGAUT for the folder contents.

Is there another type of wildcard to include the
entire contents of the path in one shot, or am I
missing something obvious?
