Index Entry interpretation for a directory

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Hi,
I am trying to parse On-disk index entries stored in the index buffers for a
directory,
from an index entry I need to find out if the child is a file or a dir.
does somebody know the structure of index entry from where I can find out
this info.
any help or pointers would be appreciated

thanx in advance
Harish

    Harish,

    If I remember it correctly, Index entry has a flag field in which a
    particular bit says whether this index entry points to a sub node
    or not.

    If an index entry points to a sub node then can we conclude that
    this is a directory and vice versa ?

    I am not sure though.
