HADFS disks have a similar structure to the file structure on Econet fileservers. Files have public and owner access strings, and directories can be given user numbers.
Directories can be given a three-byte account number (or user number)
*ACCOUNT. When a directory is logged into with
*I AM, then its user
number becomes your current user number. When a file or directory is
created, it is given the same user number as the directory it is in. You
cannot do any modification actions in a directory that you do not own, and
any files can only be accessed according to the right-hand (public) access
*MOUNT sets your user number to the account of the $ directory,
*I AM to a non-existant directory does the same as
*I AM $ on
the default drive.
Entries can be made private by setting the 'P' option with
*ACCESS. If an
entry is private, it cannot be seen if you do not own the directory it is
The NFSFront ROM created by Extras.NFSFront/s provides OSWORD &14/0 (file-server interface) to simulate a file server and supports the following functions:
14: Read disk names
15: Read users -> returns a pre-set list
16: Read date and time -> returns 00:00:00 on 00/00/1981
25: Read server version -> returns NFSFront version string
26: Read free space -> returns zero free space
*OPT2,5 will make OSARGS 0,0 return A=5, so pretending to be NET.
The program NFSTester in the Extras directory tests some of the functions. Any other Econet-type programs will be in directory Extras.Econet.
