The Win32::File module allows you to view or set the attributes for
files. There are two functions that allow you to do this, which must
be explicitly imported to your namespace:
use Win32::File qw/GetAttributes SetAttributes/;
The constant values for the attributes are exported by default.
GetAttributes (filename, \$atts)
Returns the attribute settings for file filename and saves them
as the variable referenced by $atts, which will contain
an ORed combination of one or more of the following values:
SetAttributes (filename, atts)
Set the attributes for the file filename to the values
contained in atts. The attributes are given as an ORed combination
of one or more of the attribute values shown above.
