Title: FORMULA METHOD OF COMPUTING FBA-BLOCK REQUIREMENTS ON IBM FIXED-BLOCK-ARCHITECTURE
Authors: Bradley, J.
Keywords: Computer Science
Issue Date: 1-Dec-1984
Abstract: A formula has been derived tht permits computation of the number of FBA-blocks required for a file stored on an IBM disk that uses fixed-block architecture. Previously only an involved algorithm, released by IBM, was available for this task. Both formula and the algorithm involve the use of control intervals. Control intervals are of fundamental importance with IBM file systems since they permit disk independent program manipulation of large computer files and data bases.
