AW: [Mono-list] Directory Symbolic link?

Tue, 10 Feb 2004 17:12:05 +0300 (MSK)

What exactly is a ReparsePoint?

This is what the .Net SDK has to say about it:
"The file contains a reparse point, which is a block of user-defined 
data associated with a file or a directory."

I guess this is probably my own ignorance, but would someone kindly 
explain reparse points to me?

I could not find anything with google on the matter.
