◊ DID YOU MEAN DISK OPERATING SYSTEM?
disk operating system
(DOS) The name of a number of {operating
systems} which include facilities for storing files on disk.
Such a system must handle physical disk I/O, the mapping of
file names to disk addresses and protection of files from
unauthorised access (in a {multi-user} system).
A DOS should present a uniform interface to different storage
device such as {floppy disks}, {hard disks} and {magnetic
tape} drives. It may also provide some kind of locking to
prevent unintentional simultaneous access by two processes to
the same file (or {record}).
