Set File Attributes Action

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The Set File Attributes action creates a step to set, clear, or list file attributes or timestamps.  When built, the action finds all matching files (recursively searching for matches if specified) and updates the file attributes as specified (or logs the current attributes if not changed).  If the attributes for a file are not changed, the current attributes are listed in brackets following the filename; if the attributes are changed, each attribute that was modified is listed, followed by a + or - to indicate whether the attribute was set or cleared.


When the step completes, the following temporary macros are created or updated:

SETFILEATTR_COUNT = The number of files whose attributes were modified
SETFILEATTR_PROC_COUNT = The number of matching files processed by the step
