I am trying to write a program for both Linux and Windows. I would like
to create a file that restricts read/write permissions to the owner. In
linux/unix, this is trivial:
chmod( "/home/user/myfile.txt", 0600 );
Does anyone know how to do the equivalent thing in Windows. I was able
to do what I wanted by right-click->properties->security->advanced
unselect "Inherit from parent permission entities..."
And then select unwanted groups like Everyone and "Remove".
I want to do that within a C++ program. Does anyone have any idea how
to do this?
BTW, did I say before that Windows is a PITA?
