KPSEACCESS(1)                                                    KPSEACCESS(1)




NAME

       kpseaccess - determine whether a file can be accessed


SYNOPSIS

       kpseaccess [-rwx] file


DESCRIPTION

       Exit successfully if file can be accessed with the specified mode.  The
       mode is one or more letters of rwx, where r is for readable, w  is  for
       writable, and x is for executable.

       The  difference between kpseaccess and test is that the latter looks at
       the permission bits, while the former checks using the access(2) system
       call.   This  makes  a  difference  when file systems have been mounted
       read-only.


OPTIONS

       kpseaccess accepts the following additional options:

       --help Print help message and exit.

       --version
              Print version information and exit.
