INFO: FILE_READ_EA and FILE_WRITE_EA Specific Types
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Win32 Application Programming Interface (API), used with:
- the operating system: Microsoft Windows NT, versions 3.1, 3.5, 3.51, 4.0
- the operating system: Microsoft Windows 2000
The FILE_READ_EA and FILE_WRITE_EA specific types provide access to read and write a file's extended attributes. Specific access types are represented as bits in the access mask and are specific to the object type associated with the mask.
Please note that these specific types are used in the definition of constants such as FILE_GENERIC_READ, and are not intended to be generally used when specifying access (generic access types are much more appropriate).
