WHAT DOES FILENAME MEAN IN ENGLISH?

filename

Filename

A filename is a name used to uniquely identify a computer file stored in a file system. Different file systems impose different restrictions on filename lengths and the allowed characters within filenames. A filename may include one or more of these components: ▪ host – network device that contains the file ▪ device – hardware device or drive ▪ directory – directory tree ▪ file – base name of the file ▪ type – indicates the content type of the file ▪ version – revision or generation number of the file The components required to identify a file varies across operating systems, as does the syntax and format for a valid filename. Discussions of filenames are complicated by a lack of standardisation of the term. Sometimes "filename" is used to mean the entire name, such as the Windows name c:\directory\myfile.txt. Sometimes, it will be used to refer to the components, so the filename in this case would be myfile.txt. Sometimes, it is a reference that excludes an extension, so the filename would be just myfile.

Definition of filename in the English dictionary
