File Attributes

When you issue an `ls -l' shell command on a file, it gives you information about the size of the file, who owns it, when it was last modified, and the like. This kind of information is called the file attributes; it is associated with the file itself and not a particular one of its names.

This section contains information about how you can inquire about and modify these attributes of files.
