function IsFileSystem(

  const Name: STRPTR





Name of device in question, with trailing ':'.

Function result

Flag to indicate if device is a file system


Returns whether the device is a filesystem or not. A filesystem supports seperate files storing information. It may also support sub-directories, but is not required to. If the filesystem doesn't support this new packet, IsFileSystem() will use Lock(":",...) as an indicator.

DF0:, HD0:, ... are filesystems. CON:, PIPE:, AUX:, ... are not. In AmigaOS if devicename contains no ':' then result is always True. Also volume and assign names return True.
