AFAIK chmod is used to set access auth on ifs objects like

chmod 644 test.txt

Subject: [C400-L] C function to set public authority on ifs file

Hi C400-L,

can anyone listening tell me how to set the public authority on an
ifs file from within a C(++) program ? I've searched high and low but no

I'm looking to be able to set the authority to a combination of R,W,X as
well as *AUTL

Eg similar functionality to the DTAAUT parameter of CHGAUT:

The other thing i'm stuck on is setting the authorisation list a la:
OBJ('/test.txt') AUTL(TESTAUTL), so bonus respect for ideas on this too.

Any help much appreciated.
