RE: How to "find" all writable files in a directory tree?

How do you figure? There are 8 combinations of write enable bits that
this permission specification matches. For "-perm +2" only one bit is
examined and there's only one way for it to succeed.
Any of the permission bits mode are set for the file.
-perm -222 is equivalent to -perm +2
Either I'm dense or you're mistaken.
Are you assuming a FAT file system? Cygwin takes advantage of NTFS
permissions when possible (and when the now-default ntsec option of the
CYGWIN environment variable is enabled).
