Not that I know of. This isn't really a bash issue;
news:comp.unix.programmer would be an appropriate place for this
topic. But are you sure you really need this? Unless a process is
already running in the directory, or has a descriptor referring to it,
it must pass the directory's perimssion bits before the file's
permission bits are considered.

Yes; it simply calls the kernel's umask() system call.
