> What POSIX call do we use to detect an offline file ?
I think that there are more possibilities to implement offline file
attribute in SAMBA:
- The simplest is to use an extended attribute on an EA capable FS (this
can work on various platforms that implement EA . Linux, IRIX,
- The other possibility is it to use one of reserved ext2fs flags
this way the implementation will be ext2 / ext3 specific. BTW: One of this
fields is a .commpression. attribute which can be setted by 'chattr +c'
(compressed files are colored blue on NT).
