    18221824  A file control block can exist for regular files, devices and directories.
    18231825  The following fields are important for regular file and directory access:
    18241827  - Size - For a file this represents the number of bytes currently
    18251828    stored in a file. For a directory this field is not filled in.
    18261830  - Offset - For a file this is the byte file position index relative to
    18271831    the start of the file. For a directory this is the byte offset into a
    18281832    sequence of dirent structures.
    18291834  - Pathinfo - This is a structure that provides a pointer to node
    18301835    information, OPS table functions, Handler functions and the mount table
    18311836    entry associated with this node.
    18321838  - file_info - A pointer to node information that is used by Handler
    18331839    functions
    18341841  - handlers - A pointer to a table of handler functions that operate on
    18351842    a file, device or directory through a file descriptor index
    18401847The rtems_filesystem_location_info_tt structure below provides sufficient
    18411848information to process nodes under a mounted filesystem.

    27682777    in imfs.h).
    27692779    - IMFS_DIRECTORY
    27702781      An IMFS directory contains a dynamic chain structure that
    27712782      records all files and directories that are subordinate to the directory node.
    27722784    - IMFS_MEMORY_FILE
    27732786      Under the in memory filesystem regular files hold data. Data is dynamically
    27742787      allocated to the file in 128 byte chunks of memory.  The individual chunks of
    27772790      are used to record the locations of all segments of the file.  The
    27782791      memory organization of an IMFS file are discussed elsewhere in this manual.
    27792793    - IMFS_HARD_LINK
    27802795      The IMFS filesystem supports the concept of hard links to other nodes in the
    27812796      IMFS filesystem.  These hard links are actual pointers to other nodes in the
    27822797      same filesystem. This type of link cannot cross-filesystem boundaries.
    27832799    - IMFS_SYM_LINK
    27842801      The IMFS filesystem supports the concept of symbolic links to other nodes in
    27852802      any filesystem. A symbolic link consists of a pointer to a character string
    27872804      cross-filesystem boundaries.  Just as with most versions of UNIX supporting
    27882805      symbolic links, a symbolic link can point to a non-existent file.
    27892807    - IMFS_DEVICE
    27902809      All RTEMS devices now appear as files under the in memory filesystem. On
    27912810      system initialization, all devices are registered as nodes under the file
    28112830The IMFS conforms to the general filesystem requirements for node
