The Matlab version of fileattrib allows file attributes to be set, not just read.  This isn't a very high priority since users can manipulate these values outside of Octave very easily.  In a UNIX shell, it would be chmod, in a Windows shell, it would be attrib.  Or this capability is available from file explorers / directory browsers.
