Dictionary of Computing
(file system) directory - A node in a hierarchical file system which
contains zero or more other nodes - generally, files or other directories.
This article is about the computing term. The Directory was also
a government in revolutionary France from 1795 to 1799.
In computing, a directory, catalog, or folder, is an entity in a
file system which contains a group of files and other directories.
A typical file system contains thousands of files, and directories
help organize them by keeping related files together. A directory
contained inside another directory is called a subdirectory of that
directory. Together, the directories form a hierarchy, or tree structure.
If you imagine the computer's file system as a
file cabinet, high-level directories may be represented by the drawers,
while lower-level subdirectories may be represented as file folders
within the drawers.
Historically, and even on some modern embedded
devices, the filesystems either have no support for directories
at all or only have a flat directory structure, meaning subdirectories
are not allowed; there is only a group of top-level directories
each containing files. The first popular fully general hierarchical
filesystem was that of UNIX. This type of filesystem was an early
research interest of Dennis Ritchie.
In modern times in Linux and other Unix-like systems,
directory structure is strictly defined by the Filesystem Hierarchy
The folder metaphor The name folder, presenting an analogy to the
file folder used in offices, is common on some operating systems
such as Mac OS and, increasingly, Microsoft Windows.
Strictly speaking, there is a difference between
a directory which is a filing system concept, and the WIMP metaphor
that is used to represent it (a folder).
Note that the folder metaphor may be misleading
with regard to things like file permissions on UNIX: To rename or
delete a file you need write permission to the directory that contains
the file. This is perfectly understandable if the directory is seen
as a list of filenames but not if it is seen as a container (as
graphical user interface (GUI) or WIMP environments, folders are
often depicted with icons which resemble physical file folders such
as those of a file cabinet in an office.

word directory is also used in computing and telephony with a different
sense: a central repository of information related to management
of a computer or a network of computers. This includes data on users,
applications, hosts, network devices, security credentials and more.
The directory, as opposed to a database, is heavily optimized for
reading, with the assumption that data updates are very rare compared
to data reads.
(as of 2003) the prominent directory technology is LDAP, which is
descended from the X.500 standard. Microsoft's implementation of
LDAP is Active Directory.
Distributed Management Task Force (DMTF) is creating standards related
to the information stored in such directories, and the protocols
and APIs used to access it. The main product of these efforts is
a common information model (CIM) for management.
also: directory service, web directory.
