4.1.1. File names

Common interscript commands always refer to files using Unix relative filename convention, even on non-Unix platforms; the interscript command line processor also requires master filenames given on the command line to follow this convention. These filenames are converted to the native format internally. The purpose of this mechanism is to ensure distributed source documents are platform independent.

Interscript requires the native operating system support long case sensitive filenames including the upper and lower case latin-1 (ASCII) letters, digits, and underscore, and a heirarchical directory system with some kind of current directory concept: these features are supported by all modern Unix , Windows, and Macintosh platforms. Note that interscript cannot operate on DOS or Win3.x platforms. Named File Source Names Named File Sink Names
