FEFILE.DOC -- V1(27)
FEFILE is a program which creates a file in the TOPS10 file system
(FE.SYS[1,2]). FEFILE allocates this file contiguously, verifys that
it contains no bad blocks, and then writes the location and size of
the file in the home blocks. The space represented by this file can
now be used for the console processor RSX20F system FILES-11 file
system. It is recommended that FEFILE always be run on a recently
reformatted/refreshed file structure.
