What is Reference counter in dfs (data file structure)?

  Shared By: Zak Brown    Date: Sep 17    Category: C++ Programming    Views: 883

Answer:

Reference counter is nothing but it is maintaining the number of references to a particular block. If the block is to be deleted than its reference counter must be zero. It solves both accumulation and dangling pointer problems.
