  var fs, f, r;
  fs = new ActiveXObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject");
  f = fs.GetFile(fs.GetFileName(filespec))
  if (f.attributes && 32)
      r = window.confirm("The Archive bit is set, do you want to clear it?");
      if (r)
          f.attributes = f.attributes - 32;
          window.alert( "Archive bit is cleared.");
          window.alert( "Archive bit remains set.");
      r = window.confirm("The Archive bit is not set. Do you want to set it?");
      if (r)
          f.attributes = f.attributes + 32;
          window.alert( "Archive bit is set.");
          window.alert( "Archive bit remains clear.")'
