A Handbook on File Structuring.
Shapiro, Robert M.; And Others
An initial attempt at presenting a coherent approach to the design and analysis of file structures include a discussion of the relative effeciency of different file implementations as a function of usage statistics. The fundamental differences between item and descriptor-organized files are discussed in terms of input-output requirements. Batching, buffering and concurrency are also covered. (Author/NH)
