I need to create an UN-deletable file/Directory in Mac OS using Terminal commands. I used chflags, sudo commands but it doesn't meet my requirement. For your information, in Windows we achieve this concept using attrib, cacls commands.

In Windows,

For Super Hidden concept: attrib (file or directory path) +S +H

For UN-deletable concept: cacls (file or directory path) /e /c /d %username%

Similar than i need Mac commands to achieve the Supper hidden and UN-deletable concept. if it possible kindly send me the details, thanks in advance..!:)
