I was going to suggest that you use Perl. (Oh. Everyone already knew I
going to say that.) Perl now runs on OpenVMS, and you could probably
Perl one-liner in a SYSTEM() command to change the file attribute.
But I just saw Jack's suggestion, and that seems better. Go with Jack's
if you can, and fall back on the Perl if needed.
