Appendix A. The Mac OS X Filesystem

If you do an ls -a / on your Mac OS X box, you will see some familiar things, such as /etc and /var , but you will also notice some unfamiliar things, such as /TheVolumeSettingsFolder , /Library , and /Documents . The Mac OS X filesystem contains traces of Unix, NeXTSTEP, and Mac OS 9. This appendix describes the contents of important directories. The tables in this chapter list directory entries (directories are denoted with a trailing slash) and provide a description of each file or directory.
