Regarding fopen and chmod

#include<stdio.h>
#include<unistd.h>

Hi,

when i execute the following code both lakshmi and sri gets printed,later
if i give pwd in the path /home/tcsbasr/CFILES the following statement is
displayed.

"pwd: cannot determine current directory!"

if i give ls the below statement is displayed.

".: Permission denied"

Please let me know why the above statements are getting printed.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. void main()
  2. {
  3.  
  4.         char d1[256];
  5.     char d[30]="/home/tcsbasr/CFILES/";
  6.     FILE *fp1;
  7.  
  8.     if(chmod(d,777)==0)
  9.     printf("lakshmi");
  10.  
  11.     fp1=fopen("/home/tcsbasr/CFILES/y.c","w");
  12.     if(fp1==NULL)
  13.     printf("sri");
  14.  
  15. }    

Thanks,
lakshmi

777 is not what you want. You want 0777. Having a leading 0 make the
number be interpreted as an octal number.
