Agreed - in almost every way, the IFS could be the worst-mishandled and most-misunderstood part of the system. There is a COMMON bootcamp for IFS by Margaret Fenlon, who used to be the main architect for IFS. I think they recorded her series of sessions at a POWERUp - well worth looking into, I'd say. Free to members, at least.

Vern, that's correct. I'm just growling about the skwewy ways people mix them that are inspired partly by profound misunderstanding and partly by silly habits acquired mounting Windows to IBM i.

Subject: Re: Read-only dir & files within?

No contradiction intended - just more information and perhaps showing why things are a bit muddy. IFS is as described here from the docs -

The integrated file system is a part of the IBM i operating system that supports stream input/output and

storage management similar to personal computer and UNIX operating systems, while providing an

integrating structure over all information stored on your system.

Later in the manual, "personal computer" is expanded to include DOS and Windows. So there are flags from several places to manage. That's all I was saying.
