One more time, with feelingó

The hierarchical file system APIs can handle what are called directory
entry attributes. The Change Directory Entry Attributes (QHFCHGAT) API may
be what can do this. You'd be able to define a 'Text' attribute with this.
Not sure if it'd show up in a WRKLNK display.

You might also be able to do something through 95 Explorer, where, I think,
you can add descriptions to objects.
