Can you please explain the file types in AIX?


A file is a collection of data, stream of characters or a byte stream. No structure is imposed on the file by OS. The various file types are as follows:
• Ordinary (text or code data)
• Directory (table of contents, that stores a list of files within that directory)
• Special files(representing hardware or logical devices)
An ordinary file can contain either text or code data. Text files are readable by a user and
can be displayed or printed. Code data, also known as a binary file is readable by the
computer. Binary files may be executable. Directories contain information the system needs to access all types of files, but they do not contain the actual data. Each directory entry represents either a file or a subdirectory.Special files usually represent devices used by the system.
