how to modify a directory inode


Hi, I am looking for system calls or other means to modify a directory inode. write() only works for files, and readdir() only allows access a directory inode. Any ideas?

(The proper forum is programming).

What kind of information you want to modify?
The inode modification on files is mostly through side-effects in system calls. Low-level filesystem API's may work too.

Thanks.

Where is the programming forum? The software forum is mostly for games.

Back to the topic, my main goal is to hide directory information, such as file names under it, etc. Know any low-level FS APIs that may work?
