|Parameters of Files and Folders|
size of file
date and time creation
last access date and time
last write date and time
The elements intended for servicing the file parameters use the name definitions of files for reading and writing. When reading an element value this value is retrieved from the file/folder for reading; when writing a value into an element this value is set in the file/folder for writing. If an operation error occurs, the operation error flag
will be set.
From among the attributes following attributes only may be set: R/O, ARC, HID and SYS (logic value), whereas following attributes may be read only: DIR, TEMP, COMP and OFF.
The "nicknames" (aliases) are alternative multi-lingual file names. Each file can possess beside its normal file name a nickname, too, under which it is presented to the user. This nickname may be different for every language. A file can possess a short name (8 characters), thus making possible to use long names even in systems not supporting long names (older Novell networks, another language version of the operational system, CD-ROM). The nicknames are stored in the ALIASES.INI
file, which is located in the same folder as the file/folder. By writing the text into the nickname
element the alternative name of the file/folder for writing is recorded according to the program language
active setting. By reading the text out of the element the nickname of the file/folder for reading may be found out corresponding to the active language or corresponding to another nearest language.
