I'm not really working in a *NIX environment. I want to be able to manipulate the attributes to maintain Windows compatibility. The attributes I'm talking about are the ones you see when you do a WRKLNK and then choose option 8 (Display attributes): Hidden file . . . . . . . . . . . . . : No PC system file . . . . . . . . . . . . : No Read only . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : No Need to archive (PC) . . . . . . . . . : Yes It's sounding like the Qp0lSetAttr API is the only way to change these attributes.

There is no equivalent in *NIX environments. How this is handled is dependant on the mechanism Windows & *NIX systems (the IFS is a *NIX equivalent file system) use to communicate. For example, when using Samba, the DOS attributes are mapped thus: owner group world RWX RWX RWX Owner RW = read-only Owner X = Archive? Group X = System? World X = Hidden? R = read, W = write, X = execute (source: <http://www.oreilly.com/catalog/samba/chapter/book/ch05_03.html>) Why do you need to manipulate these? Is it to maintain Windows compatibility?

Just like the DOS ATTRIB command or the Qp0lSetAttr API let you do. And I need to be able to do this in a batch job (not thru Client Access or Operations Navigator).
