file attributes

How can I change file attributes in amigados ?
What should I do if, for example, I wanted to make a file 'hidden' ?

The h bit is hold NOT hidden. It can be used in newer versions of AmigaOS to make a pure program (with p bit set) permanently resident when loaded. For example with AmigaOS 3.9 and plenty of memory, I set the h and p bits of Execute, Mount, and Assign rather than using the resident command in the S:Startup-Sequence. It cleans up the startup-sequence a bit and should be a little faster.

Yes, verified! Thanks for the insight. I always thought H was hidden as well. The combination H and P also works on 3.0 (just tested it).
