    Options are:

    -c, --changes like verbose but report only when a change is made
    -f, --silent, --quiet suppress most error messages
    -v, verbose output a diagnostic for every file processed
    -R, --recursive change files and directories recursively
    --help display this help and exit
    --version output version information and exit

    Permissions:
    u - User who owns the file.
    g - Group that owns the file.
    o - Other.
    a - All.
    r - Read the file.
    w - Write or edit the file.
    x - Execute or run the file as a program.
