Mark a file as read-only

Something like this:

answer file "choose a file"
if the result is "cancel" or it is "" then exit to top
put it into tPath
put shortFilePath(tPath) into tPath
replace "/" with "\" in tPath
put "attrib +R " & tPath into tDosCommand
set the hideConsoleWindows to true
put shell (tDosCommand) into tErr
if tErr is not empty then answer tErr

Haven't tested it, but it should work.
