RK(IV) 10/15/73 RK(IV) NAME rk - RK-11/RK03 (or RK05) disk DESCRIPTION Rk? refers to an entire RK03 disk as a single sequentially-addressed file. Its 256-word blocks are numbered 0 to 4871. Drive numbers (minor devices) of eight and greater are treated specially. Drive 8+x is the x+1 way interleaving of devices rk0 to rkx. Thus blocks on rk10 are distributed alternately among rk0, rk1, and rk2. FILES /dev/rk? BUGS Care should be taken in using the interleaved files. First, the same drive should not be accessed simultaneously using the ordinary name and as part of an interleaved file, because the same physical blocks have in effect two different names; this fools the system's buffering strategy. Second, the combined files cannot be used for swapping.
