The Question is:
Which is the structure of de INDEXF.SYS?
I'm developing an application to report file creation on my OpenVMS
environment, but it's too slow with directory command using /SINCE or /BEFORE.
I think if I can access directly to the INDEXF.SYS, with only one read pass I
can obtain thath information.
Is that possible?
The Answer is :
Consider using the AUDITING subsystem to get a handle on file creations.
Find a copy of the book "VMS File Systems Internals"
(Kirby McCoy, 1990, EY-F575E-DP) and read over section 2.5
on the layout of INDEXF.SYS.
Or, consider using the Freeware tool DFU which already has
the INDEXF.SYS knowledge build in.
