Basically in the `Files.createFile(Path fileName, FileAttribute<?>... attrs );` there is the possibility to insert a series of attributes. I am aware of the following possibility:
Do you know any other real life application of the `createFile()` method? And with other application I mean other attributes passed as a FileAttribute parameter other than a set of PosixFilePermission? What are other "passable" FileAttribute parameter that I can use to create a new file with `File.createFile(path, attr);` ?
Thanks in advance.
Good question. The documentation is lacking, and the interface doesn't seem to have anything to do with any of the attributes that you can read or write to a file with many of the other methods in the standard API.
Maybe it's used to future-proof the method, and there are not many uses for it now?
The mind is a strange and wonderful thing. I'm not sure that it will ever be able to figure itself out, everything else, maybe. From the atom to the universe, everything, except itself.
