Abstract

The UNIFORM DIRECTORY STRUCTUR (UDS) is designed for everyone who works with a com- puter. The aim is that every root directory on different computers looks the same and that all the directories and files of a computer should be structured under UDS. This causes two points: 1. A normally unsorted computer gets a structured form and the user gets a better overview of his programs. 2. Even someone who is not involved with an unfamil- iar computer can get an easy overview of the pro- grams. Different people who work on the same com- puter can find their data fast and reliably.

UNIFORM DIRECTORY STRUCTURE

by Michael Ellerbrock and Horst Geib

PURPOSE:

  The UNIFORM DIRECTORY STRUCTUR (UDS) is designed for everyone who works with a com- puter. The aim is that every root directory on different computers looks the same and that all the directories and files of a computer should be structured under UDS. This causes two points:
1. A normally unsorted computer gets a structured form and the user gets a better overview of his programs.
2. Even someone who is not involved with an unfamil- iar computer can get an easy overview of the pro- grams. Different people who work on the same com- puter can find their data fast and reliably.
