C/C++ How to change file attributes programmatically?

Does anybody know how to change file attributes such as time created/modified/accessed and hidden/system/read-only/archive? I know how to access them using
long hFile = _findfirst( DirSpec, &fileStat );
but I don't know how to change them. Any help is appreciated.
