2.4.3 ignore-chmod option (-c)

This is the “ignore fchmod(3p) errors” option. By default, if the output file permissions cannot be changed to the permissions specified in the encoded data, the file will not be written out and execution stops. This option will cause that error to be ignored. The resulting file will have all the data, but the incorrect mode settings.

fchmod() errors are also ignored if POSIXLY_CORRECT is set in the environment. RE: <>

A warning is always emitted when fchmod() fails.
