	"github.com/dastoori/higgs"
)

func main() {
	path := "foo.txt"

	// Hiding a file
	newPath, err := higgs.Hide(path)
	// NOTE: On Unix after hiding the file the file name
	// will be changed to `.foo.txt` and `newPath` contains
	// the new file name

	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
	}

	// Unhiding a file
	newPath, err = higgs.Unhide(newPath)
	
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
	}

	// Setting unix overwrite option (disable by default)
	fh := NewFileHide(".bar.txt", UnixOverwriteOption(true))

	// NOTE: On Unix if a `bar.txt` file exists, it will be
	// overwritten after unhiding `.bar.txt`
	err := fh.Unhide()
	
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println(err)
	}

	// NOTE: `fh.Path` contains the new file name
