file system info and filesystem information



Hi,

re: file system info and filesystem information

When I browse the struct task_struct, there are 3 similar fields. . .

//1. file system info

int link_count, total_link_count;

. . .

//2. filesystem information

struct fs_struct *fs;

. . .

//3. open file information

struct files_struct *files;

Anyone know the differences?

    Well, I don't really know the difference but... aren't the names explanatory by themselves?
    //1. file system info
    int link_count, total_link_count;
    File of information related to the system
    //2. filesystem information
    struct fs_struct *fs;
    What's the doubt here? The struct holds the information of the filesystem
    [/quote]
    //3. open file information
    struct files_struct *files;
    Struct with information of a particular file

    Although I repeat: I don't know it, just playing around with the comments ;)

    Anything you want to know about the kernel is here: http://www.linuxfoundation.org/

    They maintain the kernel, support Linus Torvalds so he can devote full time work on the kernel. You have to find info by searching.
