Creating Files

Chapter

Abstract

Now that a method of creating a fixed length file of records has been demonstrated, consideration will be given to the problem of creating a file whose length is variable. Any file will start with zero contents, will grow as records are added to it and shrink as records are deleted from it. It would be unusual if records came into existence in alphabetical order but that will be a probable requirement for the file.
