NAME

       chtyp - change GS/OS file type information


SYNOPSIS

       chtyp [ [ -t ftype ] [ -a atype ] ] | [ -l lang ] file...


DESCRIPTION

       Set GS/OS file type information for the specified files

       File  types  may  be specified either as a number (decimal, hexadecimal
       with a leading 0x, or octal with a leading 0)  or  by  a  three  letter
       abbreviation.   Abbreviations  are  from  the  official File Type Notes
       Index.

       Auxilary types may only be specified as a number (decimal, hexadecimal,
       or octal).

       If  a  file type is specified with no aux type, or vice versa, only the
       specified parameter is changed - the other is left as is.

       The language option sets the file type and aux type appropriate  for  a
       source  file  of the specified language.  See below for a list of valid
       languages.


OPTIONS

       The following options are available:

       -t ftype
              Set the file type of the indicated files to the specified ftype.
              The  file  type  may  be specified as a number (in decimal, as a
              hexadecimal number with a leading 0x, or as an octal number with
              a  leading  0)  or by one of the official three letter abbrevia-
              tions listed in the File Type Notes Index.  Types set by  abbre-
              viation  may  not  have their auxilary file types set due to the
              large variety of assigned auxilary types for each file type.

       -a atype
              Set the auxilary file type of the indicated files to  the  atype
              specified.  The auxilary type may only be specified as a number.

              file of the selected lang.  The -l flag may not be used with the
              -t or -a flags.
