      Description

      Name: krT82822 Date: 08/31/99


      There is no way to create a hidden file on windows platforms.

      I suggest a setHidden(java.io.File) method which sets the hidden
      bit in the windows file attribute, or prefixes the file name
      with a period under UNIX. I dont know the methods used on other platforms.

      (see also bug # 4131223 --eval1127@eng, 8/31/99)
