Repairing File Attributes on Old OpenVMS?

» close window

The Question is:

is there an equivalent to "set file/attributes" command for vms5.5-2 to reset
 files that have come via FTP and got screwed up?

The Answer is :

  You can create a program that performs the operations using the XQP $qio
  calls (see the I/O User's Reference Manual), you can upgrade to a more
  recent OpenVMS release, you can borrow access to a more recent OpenVMS
  release.  Various Freeware tools -- DFU, FILE, etc -- may be options,
  but there is a reasonable likelyhood that these tools will not work on
  something as old as OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2.  (OpenVMS VAX V5.5-2 was released
  back in 1992.)
