Cloned from #4558:

Hi, I find one problem in rtems_shell_main_chmod function. the usage of this instruction is descripted as "chmod 0777 n1 n2... #change filemode", .the src code is listed as follows. the bold part should be replaced with chmod(argv[n], mode)?

static int rtems_shell_main_chmod(
  int argc,
  char *argv[]
  int           n;
  mode_t        mode;
  unsigned long tmp;

  if (argc < 2) {
    fprintf(stderr,"%s: too few arguments\n", argv[0]);
    return -1;

   *  Convert arguments into numbers
  if ( rtems_string_to_unsigned_long(argv[1], &tmp, NULL, 0) ) {
    printf( "Mode argument (%s) is not a number\n", argv[1] );
    return -1;
  mode = (mode_t) (tmp & 0777);

   *  Now change the files modes
  for (n=2 ; n < argc ; n++)
    chmod(argv[n++], mode); /* <<<< here */

  return 0;
