Re: Attributes
Depends what OS you're using. As you haven't said, I'm going to guess you're using Windows.
In Windows the filesystem automatically handles the A attribute, it means the file has been updated. It can be used by simple backup programs; they would typically look for files with A set, backup the file and clear the A flag so that next time round the file isn't picked up unless it has actually changed.
