chattr changes the files attributes on an second extended
The format of a symbolic mode is +-=[ASacdisu].
The operator `+' causes the selected attributes to be
added to the existing attributes of the files; `-' causes
them to be removed; and `=' causes them to be the only
attributes that the files have.
The letters `ASacdisu' select the new attributes for the

append only (a), compressed (c), immutable (i), no dump
(d), secure deletion (s), and undeletable (u).
