Oops. ( All directories are +x / Calling script gods)

I don't know what I did exactly, but at some point I must have accidently made every directory on my computer executable. Although it's not really an issue for me, it's not terriffic. roll

Anyone know how to make a bash script that will recurse through every directory and 'chmod -x' them all? (Minus ones that aren't supposed to be, if it would cause issues somewhere. [ /usr/bin? :? ])

Thanks !

how about

find / -type f -exec chmod -x {} ; 

but you have to change the mod of the directories you want to keep yourself. as this runs chmod -x on all files on your system.
