The elements intended for servicing the file parameters use the name definitions of files for reading and writing. When reading an element value this value is retrieved from the file/folder for reading; when writing a value into an element this value is set in the file/folder for writing. If an operation error occurs, the operation error flag will be set.
From among the attributes following attributes only may be set: R/O, ARC, HID and SYS (logic value), whereas following attributes may be read only: DIR, TEMP, COMP and OFF.
The "nicknames" (aliases) are alternative multi-lingual file names. Each file can possess beside its normal file name a nickname, too, under which it is presented to the user. This nickname may be different for every language. A file can possess a short name (8 characters), thus making possible to use long names even in systems not supporting long names (older Novell networks, another language version of the operational system, CD-ROM). The nicknames are stored in the ALIASES.INI file, which is located in the same folder as the file/folder. By writing the text into the nickname element the alternative name of the file/folder for writing is recorded according to the program language active setting. By reading the text out of the element the nickname of the file/folder for reading may be found out corresponding to the active language or corresponding to another nearest language.
