FairCom Server stores data in files. Two main types of files are discussed in this section:
This section also discusses different file formats, file modes, and other details.
FairCom DB (in releases V7 and later) supports two different, but related, file formats:
The extended 8-byte file creation routines (e.g., CreateDataFileXtd8(), CreateIFileXtd8(), etc.) create Extended files by default. Extended files are not compatible with c-tree Plus V6. However, the extended 8-byte file creation functions will create Standard files when using the ctNO_XHDRS extended file mode. The existing file creation functions (e.g., CreateDataFile(), CreateIFileXtd(), etc.) create only Standard files.
The FairCom Drivers read both Standard and Extended files and create Standard files.
