## About File-Attributes This is a small OS portability library to retrieve and set file attributes not supported by the Lisp standard functions. ## How To Simply use the functions ``access-time``, ``modification-time``, and ``creation-time`` to access the relevant timestamps. Some stamps may not be accessible or modifiable depending on your OS or file system. In order to manage attribute information, use ``owner``, ``group``, and ``attributes``. The values used are OS specific for these functions, though the attributes flag can be decoded and encoded via a standardised form with ``decode-attributes`` and ``encode-attributes``. Any of the above operations may signal an error if the file does not exist, is inaccessible, the operation is not possible, or some other failure occurred.
