|Post subject:||Folder Write Permissions?|
I need to determine if the current user has write permissions to a specific folder.
I can get the human readable, or the octal file permissions but this doesnt give me what I need, and it would take a lot of code to use these values to determine if this specific user is the owner, part of the writeable group, etc...
Is there a better way to check for write permissions?

if [ -w './path/to/folder' ]
echo 'yay i can write'
Check 'man test'

All that I know of bash scripting is from google and looking at other scripts and its been difficult to try and find this solution, I may have even encountered it before; however the syntax really doesnt explain what it does (to one not experienced with bash scripting) so I probably just glanced right over it, not knowing what it was.
