Subject RE: Reminder: [SUBMIT] Attr, a chmod equivalent for Windows
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2001 16:33:05 GMT
Can you say where I can find the chmod variant for winnt / 2000. I have that
box here too, so I can use it for sanity testing.. (isn't there also a chgrp
and chown replacement for win ?)

Mvgr,
martin
