       hattrib - change HFS file or directory attributes


       hattrib [-t TYPE] [-c CREA] [-|+i] [-|+l] hfs-path [...]

       hattrib -b hfs-path


       hattrib  permits  the  alteration  of  HFS  file attributes. In the first form, the MacOS-
       defined type and creator attributes can be set using the -t and -c flags, respectively.  A
       file's  invisible  flag  can  be  set  or cleared with +i and -i, respectively. Finally, a
       file's locked flag can be set or cleared with +l and -l.

       All files mentioned on the command line will receive the specified attributes,  regardless
       of  the file's current attributes. Any attribute not mentioned in the command line is left

       In the second form, a single HFS pathname referring to a  folder  is  given  with  the  -b
       option,  causing it to become "blessed" as the MacOS System Folder. For this to be useful,
       the folder should contain valid Macintosh System and Finder files.

       Note that the locked and "blessed" attributes have little consequence to hfsutils.
