Adding execute permissions recursively only to folders

Something neat I found that I never knew about.  I suppose I could have just read the man pages…  The below line will add user permissions of rwx and group/other permissions of read and execute recursively, only adding execute permissions to the folders and not files.

chmod -R u=rwX,go=rX .
