Protect - Changes the protection flags of a file
FILE/A, FLAGS, ADD/S, SUB/S, ALL/S, QUIET/S
FILE - Medatory: name/pattern of the files FLAGS - Flags to modify (see below) ADD - Add the specified flags SUB - Remove the specified flags ALL - Modify flags of all files matching entered pattern QUIET - Removes text messages
The protection bits are represented by letters:
s - The file is a script p - The file is a pure command and can be made resident a - The file has been archived r - The file can be read w - The file can be written to (altered) e - The file is executable (a program) d - The file or directory can be deleted. (Files within a delete-protected directory can still be deleted.)
You have three ways to set or clear protection flags of a file:
- Specify the protection bits you want to set using the FLAGS argument without any other argument.
- Use ADD and/or SUB followed by the bits you want to set/clear
- Use '+' followed by the bits you want to set and '-' followed by the bits you want to clear.
