file attributes


Is there an archive attribute or bit that can be set for files on a linux system like DOS?

I realize there are the standard rwx bits, but was wondering if there were other attributes that can be set or marked as well.

Not to my knowledge... You are wondering if there is a way to do an incremental backup?

There are, AFAIK. But Ext2/3 only, if I remember correctly. There are more attributes than rwx. Unfortunatelly I don't remember the commands to deal with them.
