Hello, I have a quick question concerning file attributes. I am only talking about general file attributes such as read only, etc. More to the point, are these attributes stored within the file itself, and if so, what is the format that they are stored in? Personally, I'm thinking that they are somehow mapped within the operating system itself as opposed to the file, but I just want to be sure.
I also have another question, what is the termination sequence or character for a general binary/text file? In Layman's terms, what marks the end of a file? Thanks for the help. Regards.
Edit: By binary file, I mean a file that stores unique data structures.
