       mattrib - change MSDOS file attribute flags

Note of warning
       This  manpage  has been automatically generated from mtools's
       texinfo documentation, and may not be  entirely  accurate  or
       complete.  See the end of this man page for details.

       Mattrib is used to change MS-DOS file attribute flags. It has
       the following syntax:

       mattrib [-a|+a]  [-h|+h]  [-r|+r]  [-s|+s]  [-/]   [-p]  [-X]
       msdosfile [ msdosfiles ... ]

       Mattrib  adds attribute flags to an MS-DOS file (with the `+'
       operator) or remove attribute flags (with the `-' operator).

       Mattrib supports the following attribute bits:

       a      Archive bit.  Used by some backup programs to indicate
              a new file.

       r      Read-only  bit.   Used  to  indicate a read-only file.
              Files with this bit set cannot be erased  by  DEL  nor

       s      System  bit.   Used  by MS-DOS to indicate a operating
              system file.

       h      Hidden bit.  Used to make files hidden from DIR.

       Mattrib supports the following command line flags:

       /      Recursive.  Recursively list  the  attributes  of  the
              files in the subdirectories.

       X      Concise.  Prints the attributes without any whitespace
              padding.  If neither the "/" option is given, nor  the
              msdosfile  contains  a wildcard, and there is only one
              MS-DOS file parameter on the command  line,  only  the
              attribute  is  printed,  and  not  the filename.  This
              option is convenient for scripts

       p      Replay mode.  Outputs a  series  of  mformat  commands
              that  will  reproduce  the current situation, starting
              from a situation as left by untarring the MS-DOS  file
              system.   Commands  are only output for attribute set‐
              tings that differ from the default  (archive  bit  set
              for  files,  unset  for  directories).  This option is
              intended to be used in addition to tar.  The  readonly
              attribute  is  not  taken into account, as tar can set
              that one itself.

       Mtools' texinfo doc

Viewing the texi doc
       This manpage has been automatically generated  from  mtools's
       texinfo documentation. However, this process is only approxi‐
       mative, and some items, such  as  crossreferences,  footnotes
       and  indices  are  lost in this translation process.  Indeed,
       these items have no appropriate representation in the manpage
       format.   Moreover,  not  all information has been translated
       into the manpage version.  Thus I strongly advise you to  use
       the  original  texinfo  doc.  See the end of this manpage for
       instructions how to view the texinfo doc.

       *      To generate a printable copy from the texinfo doc, run
              the following commands:

                     ./configure; make dvi; dvips mtools.dvi

       *      To generate a html copy,  run:

                     ./configure; make html

       A  premade  html  can  be  found at `‐

       *      To generate an info copy (browsable using emacs'  info
              mode), run:

                     ./configure; make info

       The  texinfo  doc  looks most pretty when printed or as html.
       Indeed, in the info version certain examples are difficult to
       read due to the quoting conventions used in info.
