How to get Octal File Permissions from the Command Line

Just putting this here as a note for myself.

File permissions in Linux can be displayed in octal format using Linux stat command.

stat -c '%A %a %n' *

  • %A Access rights in human readable form
  • %a Access rights in octal
  • %n File name
