Which are concerned with checking for and correcting inconsistencies in the filesystem structures on disk. Programming the UNIX System 40 Example 3. Measuring Filesystem Fragmentation When an empty filesystem is created, the blocks on the freelist are ordered in such a way as to optimise the speed of access of files built from this freelist. This is done by ordering the freelist blocks so that when they are allocated to a file, that file's logically adjacent blocks are the optimal physical distance apart.

Rc, 1); 0) The characters are copied, one by one, from the file descriptor O. via the character variable c, to file descriptor 1.

If our simple cat command is invoked from the shell, it can be used to create and copy files, for example +Standard Error is generally unbuffered to allow the immediate output of error diagnostics.

Block and Character I/O Below the inode level and within the UNIX system, there are two separate device interfaces; these are called the block I/O system and the character I/O system; the principal difference between the two classes is that block I/O is designed to optimise access to devices where data is organised in fixed size records. Character I/O, on the other hand, is designed to optimise access to devices where data is stored with no fixed record structure. Device Numbers In order to relate access to a special Tile with I/O requests on a particular device the system associates each device with a unique+ device number.
