       #include <sys/types.h>
       #include <sys/stat.h>
       int chmod (
	       const char *path,
	       mode_t mode );
       mode_t umask (
	       mode_t cmask );

       vms-files(5): OpenVMS File System Differences

       The syntax of filename path are different on UNIX and OpenVMS.

       Setting	mode  to  0777	on OpenVMS results in the default OpenVMS file
       protections being used provided that you have  not  defined  a  default
       mask using umask(2).  This feature is not available on UNIX.

       vms-system(5): OpenVMS Operating System Differences

       The range of values for mode and cmask supported by OpenVMS is a subset
       of the values supported on UNIX.	  OpenVMS  is  restricted  to  setting
       read, write and execute permission for owner, group and world.
