os.lchmod(path, mode)

Change the mode of path to the numeric mode. If path is a symlink, this affects the symlink rather than the target. See the docs for chmod() for possible values of mode. As of Python 3.3, this is equivalent to os.chmod(path, mode, follow_symlinks=False).

Raises an auditing event os.chmod with arguments path, mode, dir_fd.

Availability: Unix.

Changed in version 3.6: Accepts a path-like object.
