Data and programs are stored in the system files. Files are used to
arrange and protect data and programs. The essential part of a file
specification is the file name. You name a file when you create,
rename, or copy it.
The file name that you choose must be one to six alphanumeric
characters long. It is possible to use non-alphanumeric characters,
but some symbols have a special meaning to the system and some
programs may not recognize non-alphanumeric characters.
The file name is divided into the name of the file and the file
extension. The format is:
Where FILE is the name you choose to distinguish the file, and .EXT is
a standard or non-standard file extension. The period (.) is used to
separate the file name from the file extension.
It is recommended that you use standard file extensions where
applicable. The standard file name extensions are listed in the help
file FILEXT. File extensions are optional. You can name or specify a
file without an extension.
File names and extensions can be changed using the RENAME command.
