Warning! Uptowner can allow you to seriously damage your system. Use it with extreme caution.

Uptowner allows a user with administrative privileges to temporarily become the owner of a file and its enclosing folder. It temporarily promotes you "up to owner", hence the name Uptowner.

Sometimes I look at a root owned read-only file when logged in with administrative privileges, then decide I'd like to make a change. That's when Uptowner comes in handy. Start by finding a file (a text file is simplest) in a window that has the "pencil with a line through it" icon. A fairly safe file to play with might be one of the .log
