changing file attributes
Message ID:
I'm receiving several hundred data files from from several states via
CD-ROM.  When these files are copied to my hard drive or network storage,
the read-only attribute remains on the file.  What I would like to do is
have Perl to remove the read-only attribute for all of the files that I put
in a certain folder (e.g., L:\Flu\StData\).

If there is a better way or another program to do this, can someone direct
me to the appropriate tool?
