    Is it possible in UNIX/BSD? Just to give inode instead of path name for
    accessing files.

    Thanks,
    Rodrigo

    This group doesn't discuss UNIX, BSD, or whatever "inodes" are.
    Please read
    http://www.msu.edu/user/pfaffben/writings/clc/off-topic.html
    and then perhaps try a group with "unix" or "bsd" in its name.

    What is an "inode"?

    P.S. It was a rhetorical question
