I have current directory permission setting
drwxrwxr-x abc abc mydir
if I "cd mydir", and create a new file "myfile", I saw following permission setting for "myfile"
-rw-r--r-- abc abc myfile
How can I make it be like
-rw-rw-r-- abc abc myfile
Note: I am referring to any new file, not existing files. For existing files, I know I can simple do "chmod g+w *" inside the directory. thanks for help in advance !

I don't know how to change this for every file created in a directory, but you may use
umsask 112 touch foo touch bar # ... umask 022
- at least my linux behaves this way.
man bash /umask
was my only information source.
I agree. Here's the link:
