Hi Alex,

Please try the following commands and paste in the

$ cd /tmp
$ touch foobar
$ ls -l foobar
$ /usr/local/bin/chmod --version
$ /usr/local/bin/chmod 755 foobar
$ ls -l foobar
$ /usr/local/bin/chmod 710 foobar
$ ls -l foobar

You can capture all that with typescript if you
didn't know that, or just use X, copy, and paste.

You might also tell us what OS you are running.
Good luck, those commands worked for me.
