This python class converts a permission mask in symbolic format (the kind a diretcory listing produces, ex.: drwxr-xr-x) to a string that's usable in a chmod command.

ex.: chmod u=rwx,g=rwx,o=rwtx ~/myscripts/convert_mask.py

This can be very useful when recovering permissions from a backup.

Recursively removes files or directories with a given name, using find.

I most frequently use it to remove 'CVS' or '.svn' directories from sourcepackages that still have the versioning information in them.
