       DtDtsSetDataType — set the data type of a directory

       #include <Dt/Dts.h>
       char *DtDtsSetDataType(
       const char *dirpath,
       const char *datatype,
       const int override);

       The  DtDtsSetDataType function sets the data type of a directory.  This
       may be accomplished by adding a file named with a leading  dot  to  the

       The dirpath argument is a pathname of the directory.

       The datatype argument is a data type.

       If the value is already set, DtDtsSetDataType does not change the value
       unless the override argument is set to True.

       Upon successful completion, the	DtDtsSetDataType  function  returns  a
       pointer	to  a  data  type  string,  or NULL if it was unable to set or
       retrieve the data type.

       Directories can have data types associated with them, just  as  regular
       files can.  For example, a file manager may choose to alter the appear‐
       ance of the directory's icon based on this data type or	a  system  may
       use  a  directory  of files as an means of supporting a complex form of
       data, such as a compund document.
