Subject RE: Reminder: [SUBMIT] Attr, a chmod equivalent for Windows
Date Fri, 03 Aug 2001 17:19:46 GMT
Maby a misunderstanding here.. I'm not doubting that there should be an
attrib task..
I was refering to Mathew's question : (at least my interpration of it ) is
it tested on a linux (or other non windows box) and does it actually skip
the task?

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Mvgr,
Martin
