Depending on your shell, there is a "umask" command that
can be used as a "template". For example, if you're using
the default dialog shell csh, put the required "umask <value"
into ~/.cshrc. Note that this will cause _all_ file creations
by that user to have that predefined value.

See "man csh" for details. (In case you're using bash or a
different shell, consult the respective documentation.)
