The attached patch adds suport for [file attributes - readonly] (i.e. the user immutable flag) on any unix system supporting chflags(), this includes BSD >= 4.4 and Darwin/ MacOSX (where this is the flag corresponding to the file locked state in HFS+). On systems supporting getattrlist(), i.e. currently only pure Darwin & Mac OSX, the patch adds support for the MacOS9 style [file attributes -creator -type -hidden] via POSIX level APIs that don't require linking with Carbon. Tested the patch on the SF compilefarm on [Alpha] Linux 2.4 (Debian 3.0), where none of the APIs are available and no ill effects ensue [x86] FreeBSD (4.7-RC), where chflags() is available and [file attributes -readonly] can successfully be interrogated, (but not set due to permission issues at sourceforge) as well as on both MacOSX 10.1.5 and 10.2 where the complete functionality is available. docs will need changing if this is accepted for checkin, that's not in the patch yet. It'd be great if this could make it into 8.4.1

Logged In: YES user_id=79902 Jim and Vince both like it? Then it's probably good enough for me too. Stop dithering and commit to the HEAD. But DO NOT apply this patch to the 8.4 branch, which should be feature-frozen on all platforms.

Logged In: YES user_id=32170 I did a fair amount of testing on this last night, and the patch looks good. Minor quibble is it appears to introduce a few compiler warnings, but I think we should apply asap.

Logged In: YES user_id=32170 This new patch looks fine to me, as one of the fs maintainers.

Logged In: YES user_id=90580 Updated patch to the current 8.5a0 HEAD, since the old patch didn't apply completely cleanly anymore. To clarify things, renamed occurrences of "Finder" to "MacOSX" in static proc names (still slightly inaccurate because everything will also work on a pure Darwin system).
