• Basic abstraction for non-volatile storage.

• Typically comprises a single contiguous logical address space.

• Internal structure:

1. None (e.g. sequence of words, bytes)

2. Simple record structures

– lines

– fixed length

– variable length

3. Complex structures

– formatted document

– relocatable object file

• Can simulate 2,3 with byte sequence by inserting appropriate control characters.

• All a question of who decides:
