 NAME
      doschmod - change attributes of a DOS file

 SYNOPSIS
      doschmod [-u] mode device:file ...

 DESCRIPTION
      doschmod is the DOS counterpart of chmod (see chmod(1)).

    Options
      doschmod recognizes one option:

	   -u	  Disable argument case conversion.  In the absence of this
		  option, all DOS file names are converted to uppercase.

      A DOS file name is recognized by the presence of an embedded colon (:)
      delimiter; see dosif(4) for DOS file naming conventions.

      Metacharacters *, ?, and [ ... ] can be used when specifying DOS file
      names.  These must be quoted when specifying a DOS file name, because
      file name expansion must be performed by the DOS utilities, not by the
      shell.  DOS utilities expand file names as described in regexp(5)
      under PATTERN MATCHING NOTATION.

      The attributes of each named file are changed according to mode, which
      is an octal number in the range 000 to 0377.  mode is constructed from
      the logical OR of the following modes:

	   200	     Reserved.	Do not use.
	   100	     Reserved.	Do not use.
	   040	     Archive.  Set whenever the file has been written to and
		     closed.
	   020	     Directory.	 Do not modify.
	   010	     Volume Label.  Do not modify.
	   004	     System file.  Marks files that are part of the DOS
		     operating system.
	   002	     Hidden file.  Marks files that do not appear in a DOS
		     directory listing using the DOS DIR command.
	   001	     Read-Only file.  Marks files as read-only.

 WARNINGS
      Specifying inappropriate mode values can make files and/or directories
      inaccessible, and in certain cases can damage the file system.  To
      prevent such problems, do not change the mode of directories and
      volume labels.

      Normal users should have no need to use mode bits other than 001, 002,
      and 040.

 EXAMPLES
      Mark file /dev/rfd9122:memo.txt as a hidden file:
