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.

access(2)
