[Mono-list] How to get file information on Linux?

I want to get various bits of information about files on Linux systems.

In particular, I want to get file attributes, file permissions, owner and
whether the file is an actual file or a link of some type.

In Windows I would use FileInfo.Attributes to get file attributes - but this
just returns FileAttributes.Normal on Linux, even though the lsattr command
reports ----ia-------e-- (for example).

In Windows I would use FileSecurity to get the owner and file permissions -
but this throws with PlatformNotSupportedException on Linux.
