File List

List of all file classes in the program. The list shows the state of the file which can be one of the following:

  • readwrite = data is stored in the datafile and is currently in read and write mode (usually only when in the process of updating).
  • readonly = data is stored in the datafile and is currently in read only mode (the normal state).
  • memory = data is only held in global memory and never stored in the datafile.
  • closed = data is not currently not available in memory (usually used where the data slot is in a temporarily opened datafile such as the CMS system).
