logical file

Definition

Electronics

  • The manner in which a file is organized from the user's perspective, as opposed to a physical file, which is the way it truly is distributed. For example, a user may view the content of a file as a series of consecutive paragraphs, while it may actually consist of many data elements stored in multiple locations on one or more disks.
