JSI Tip 1802. How do I print the folder and file permissions for a directory?

In tip 0596, we scripted the ability to report permissions on a directory tree.

If you wish to simply print the permissions on the objects of a single folder, you can type:

CACLS <Path>\*.* > <Drive>\Folder\Report.txt


XCACLS <Path>\*.* > <Drive>\Folder\Report.txt

Then print the <Drive>\Folder\Report.txt file.
