[Q]find file permissions of an application

I would like to know how to find permissions a given application has. Each app is run as a certain user, so wouldn't finding the file permissions of an app be the same as finding the file permissions of a user? On Linux/Unix there is the find command but I don't know of any alternative command that is available on android. I am running KitKat 4.4.2 kernal 3.40-gadb2201. An answer or direction to the answer is greatly appreciated.

Download root explorer and click on /data/app/nameofapp
For the most part all apps are rw-r--r--

Thank you for the information. I should have been more specific, is there a way to do this through the shell using adb without installing any additional apps.

ls -l /data/app/nameofapp.apk
Or /system/app or whatever
Then use chmod to change permissions if needed
