Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In computing, as well as in non-computing contexts, a file sequence is a well-ordered, collection of files, usually related to each other in some way. In computing, file sequences should ideally obey some kind of locality of reference principle, so that not only all the files belonging to the same sequence ought to be locally referenced to each other, but they also obey that as much as is their proximity with respect to the ordering relation. Explicit file sequences are, in fact, sequences whose filenames all end with a numeric or alphanumeric tag in the end. The aforementioned locality of reference usually pertains either to the data, the metadata, or the physical proximity within the storage media they reside in. In the latter acception it is better to speak about file contiguity.show more
