AliasedFile

&FileManager

The AliasedFile property is a reference to the actual file's FileManager. A nonnull value for this property indicates the managed file is an alias of another file. The FileManager uses this property to synchronize commands, buffers, etc. between the alias file and its actual file.

 

This property should be null (uninitialized) for the actual file and initialized for any aliases.

Implementation:

If the managed file is an alias, you should initialize the AliasedFile property after the Init method is called, or within a derived Init method specific to the managed file. See the Conceptual Example. The ABC Templates generate code to set this property for alias files in the appnaBC0.CLW file.
