Nothing you can do will accomplish that. There is the umask mechanism
(as Carlos pointed out), but it operates by _removing_ permission bits
when files are created. The program that creates the file will use
permissions like 0666 for plain files and 0777 for executable files and
Thus, you'll find that linker ("ld") output is executable (with umask
bits turned off, of course) but that ordinary text files created by a
text editor will not. If such files are scripts, then you'll have to
add the execute bits yourself:
% chmod +x scriptFile
There's basically nothing you can do to work around this mechanism,
since it's a matter of both the creating application and the
kernel-imposed umask mechanism. Apart from the umask setting itself,
none of this is within your control.
