Fileshare Server

To specify a virtual file handler, use the /ap (application program) option with the /f option in the database reference file to specify the program to which I/O requests for a particular data file are passed by the Fileshare Server.

Example:

fs /d dbase.ref /f user1.dat /ap myprog

This adds entries to the database reference file, dbase.ref which specify that the Fileshare Server should pass all I/O requests for the data file user1.dat to the program myprog.

Windows:

On Windows, your program should be in .obj file format and needs to be linked into the main Fileshare module, fs.dll. See the section Linking the Fileshare Server on Windows for further details.
