Next: Link Attributes
The following attributes are defined for directories:
- DIRECTORY-ORDERING (not yet implemented)
- This attribute
is a 3-tuple. The
default value is
SORTED NAME-COMPONENT INCREASING
which means that, by default, directory entries are sorted in increasing
order according to the value of their NAME-COMPONENT
The first element of the tuple is SORTED or UNSORTED. If
UNSORTED, the next two elements must be null. If SORTED,
the second field specifies an attribute which is the sort key. The
third element is either INCREASING or DECREASING, meaning
the order of sorting.
If the INCLUDE-NATIVE attribute is set to any value other than
NONATIVE, then the DIRECTORY-ORDERING cannot be
If there is a COLLATION-ORDER attribute in addition, then
COLLATION-ORDER is a major sort key and this is the minor key.
- INCLUDE-NATIVE (not yet implemented)
- Whether to include
information from the native filesystem in the directory. If files are
included, they will be included from the real directory on the server
with the same hsoname as the Prospero directory. Its
attribute-type is a single-element SEQUENCE.
- Do not include files from native directory.
- Include all files from native directory.
- Same as above, but (for the UNIX server) do not
include ``.'' and ``..''.
- All entries in directory are from native dir;
no links have been added. For the UNIX server, ``.'' and
``..'' are NOT included.
- Directory is not real. This is set for all
directories returned from filters and by Archie and Gopher.
