  This is gonna sound strange.

  There are no 'files'. A 'file' is an application level construct.

   If you wanted to create a 'domain' with the same properties as a 'file', then you'd need to also create a set of domain operators that did similar things to posix. But I would encourage people to avoid that notion. Received on Fri Jun 08 2007 - 21:22:42 CEST
