in reply to umask

You can set the permissions with your fifth argument to tie when creating the database:
tie(%database, 'DB_File', $path_to_db, O_RDWR | O_CREAT, $permissions); Alternately, if you really wanted to use umask, here's a brief explanation. Umask is basically the bits not to set when a file or directory is created, files will be 666 and directories 777 with the umask bits removed, thus a umask of 002 will make files 664 and directories 775 and a umask of 010 will make files 666 (because the group x bit isn't set, it isn't modified) and directories 767 (a umask of 010 isn't really useful, it was just used as an example). And always remember to begin your permissions with a 0 to get them in octal (0644, 0777, etc.)
