Hi. I want to get/read executable permission (x) from existing file, but I'cant find solution in Java 1.5.
I know, that in Java 1.6 can invoke method of File class: f.canExecute(), but this method is existing since Java 1.6.
Can you help me?
Then apparently it's not possible with pure Java in 1.5. You'll have to either execute an external command (such as ls in linux) and parse the results or use JNI or JNA to create a native library to examine the file, or find an existing 3rd-party native library that does it.
