ODS-2 is the standard VMS file system, and remains the most common file system for system disks (the disk on which the operating system is installed).My favorite has always been the VMS "indexed" file type. I liked the fact that everything was contained in one data file, no external indexes or other external files as overhead. There are still things you could (can) do with them so simply that can't be done, easily if at all on modern RDBMS or other databases.And no need to keep track of the indexes in your programming, it was all taken care of for you.INDEX files are also associated with Unknown Apple II File (found on Golden Orchard Apple II CD Rom) and File View Pro.Additional types of files may also be using the INDEX file extension.
There's probably a presentation (ISTR one done in the late '80s or early '90s) available somewhere still today, but I don't know where.
because you can't delete individual entries from a text file, formatted (records) or not. How things "work" for the user is pretty well described in the various RMS manuals that come with VMS.
You can blank out the record data, but the record is still there. It is a matter of philosophy whether RMS is part of VMS. How things "work" internally (what code is in place to fill the buckets, so to speak) well, there have been "advanced RMS" courses in the past, but I don't know if there's an "RMS Internals" manual around (/ping/ Hein) /Wilm sauce" today?
The intended audience of this book is anyone using Wireshark.
This book will explain all the basics and also some of the advanced features that Wireshark provides.
