What is `inode' in file system?


  • 2

    Please explain the concept inode in file system.

    A basic idea: inode is a type of data-structure in a UNIX-style file system, and is used to store a file's metadata such as block location, owner, time of last change, etc.

    I was asked in an interview by sisko.
