is it possible to tell whether the current process has execute permission on a particular file, without actually executing it ? given the results from a stat of the file, and the contents of #c/user, it's easy to check user permissions, but how is it possible to check whether the user is a member of a particular group in order to check the group and other permissions ? it's useful for a shell to be able to do this when executing shell scripts. rog.
