    Angry how get file attributes in c ?

    hi every one

    i'm trying to get and set file attributes in windows using C language

    file attributes like :
    Read-Only
    Hidden
    System
    Volume Label
    Directory
    Archive

    and i don't find any functions to do that

    In windows using GetFileAttributes function you can get the attributes of the file.
    In Linux using stat function you can achieve this

    I just use stat() on Windows & UNIX:
    _stat, _stat64, _stati64, _wstat, _wstat64, _wstati64 (CRT)

    Check if there's a stat() function in Turbo C++.
