1 file.test FileTestCase::assertFilePermissions($filepath, $expected_mode, $message = NULL)

Helper function to test the permissions of a file.


$filepath: String file path.

$expected_mode: Octal integer like 0664 or 0777.

$message: Optional message.

This provides SimpleTests for the core file handling functionality. These include FileValidateTest and FileSaveTest.


Base class for file tests that adds some additional file specific assertions and helper functions.


function assertFilePermissions($filepath, $expected_mode, $message = NULL) {
  // Clear out PHP's file stat cache to be sure we see the current value.

  // Mask out all but the last three octets.
  $actual_mode = fileperms($filepath) & 0777;

  // PHP on Windows has limited support for file permissions. Usually each of
  // "user", "group" and "other" use one octal digit (3 bits) to represent the
  // read/write/execute bits. On Windows, chmod() ignores the "group" and
  // "other" bits, and fileperms() returns the "user" bits in all three
  // positions. $expected_mode is updated to reflect this.
  if (substr(PHP_OS, 0, 3) == 'WIN') {
    // Reset the "group" and "other" bits.
    $expected_mode = $expected_mode & 0700;
    // Shift the "user" bits to the "group" and "other" positions also.
    $expected_mode = $expected_mode | $expected_mode >> 3 | $expected_mode >> 6;
