Named file streams

24.03.2010 Leave a comment

I found a MSDN article on multiple file streams on NTFS. MAC supports that feature but Linux/Unix don’t. That, plus some kind of private/public key mechanism, might be an interesting way to provide nice system for signing documents. ┬áThe idea would be like that: before user opens a file, a small program is launched. It checks if the file contains named stream with signature. This behaviour might be accomplished using this. Method deprecated. Maybe this or this?

Apparently, Criag Larman has a blog. The topics are varied: science, photography, organic food are just few examples. He also writes about programming and mentions a tool used by NASA for Mars probes: Java Path Finder. He claims it is good for finding complex multithreading bugs.
