A chmode or change mode is a command used in Linux to change or alter the access mode of a file. 

The syntax of the chmod command in Linux is as follows:

chmod [reference][operator][mode] file…


Here the reference is used to differentiate users to whom permissions are granted.
The operators validate how the modes of a file should be altered. And which permissions to give or reject are decided by modes.
