I am trying to make a little app that will give a print out of all the files and file attributes in a selected directory.

The attribute I would like to get are;
Last Accessed
Created
Owner
Size

I am on a NT/Novel setup so I need to read the Novel Info on the file.

I have all the directory browsing and all that.

Any ideas how to read the Novel file attribute?

Some examples are required please....!

Cheers
Marcus

The only way is to use Novell API. WinAPI won't help with NetWare attributes.

I cannot remeber exactly which functions I used to obtain those attrs., however you can find all the required info on Novell website.

If you're writing a batch file, try using the novell command NDIR /DA to get all the date information on the files in the directory.

NDIR on its' own may be sufficient for your needs!
