While the meta-data for the file system may all be in unicode (file names, directory names, etc.) I don't believe the files themselves are in unicode. So if you have many small files I can see the overhead of unicode having a negative effect, but if you have a few large files then unicode is a nit. Having said that, I realize that java and web pages are often made up of lots of small files. -Walden ------------ Walden H Leverich III President Tech Software (516)627-3800 x11 WaldenL@TechSoftInc.com http://www.TechSoftInc.com -----Original Message----- From: firstname.lastname@example.org [mailto:email@example.com] Sent: Friday, January 04, 2002 09:44 To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Definition of QDOC and the IFS (was: Max objects in Library) <snip> In V3R1 of OS/400, these two files systems were "picked up" and deposited into the IFS, which is a more modern PC like file system, with (relatively) unlimited lengths for file names and extensions. All of the overhead for OV was dropped out of this system. This file system is all done in Unicode, which is why it has so much overhead. <snip>
