n-Class 3 Summer 2009 File names and Extensions Files are most commonly recognized by the names we as users give them. However, one of the common mistakes most users make is associating a file with a standard based upon its file extension. 1. File extensions are always an accurate representation of what a file is. True False In a file tree, a pathname is much like a street address in a residential area. An address lets everyone know that a person or business is located at a certain building, on a certain street, in a certain neighborhood, in a certain city, etc. A pathname allows the user to know the location of a particular file in the file tree. Each pathname begins at the / , root , and works down through the subdirectories. Between each subdirectory, we place a / , slash . So, the pathname to pams.ncsu.edu is: /afs/pams.ncsu.edu
