cpmchattr — change file attributes on CP/M files

Synopsis

cpmchattr [-f format] image attrib file-pattern ...

Description

Cpmchattr changes the file attributes for files on CP/M disks.

Options

-f format
Use the given CP/M disk format instead of the default format.
-T libdsk-type
libdsk driver type, e.g. tele for Teledisk images or raw for raw images (requires building cpmtools with support for libdsk).
attrib
Set the file attributes as given.

File Attributes

The file attribute string can contain the characters 1,2,3,4,r,s,a,n and m. The meanings of these are:

1-4
The CP/M "user attributes" F1-F4. CP/M does not assign any meaning to these attributes, though MP/M does.
r
The file is read-only. This is the same as using cpmchmod(1) to revoke write permissions.
s
The file is a system file. This attribute can also be set by cpmchmod(1).
a
The file has been backed up.
n
Reset all attributes to zero. So the string "n1r" resets all attributes and then sets F1 and Read-Only.
m
Attributes after an m are unset rather than set. The string "12m34" sets atttributes F1 and F2, and unsets F3 and F4.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, exit code 0 is returned.

Errors

Any errors are indicated by exit code 1.
