Command filename.mds File/Access: General
Applicable release versions: AP
Category Access: General (65)
Description is the highest level file in the Pick file structure and resides on the dm account.

The "mds" file contains pointers to all master dictionaries (accounts) on the system. The "real" account pointers are those that are defined by "d-pointers". See "create-account".

There are also "synonym" definition items in the system file which essentially define alternate names for existing accounts.

A few "system-level" files may also be found in the "mds" file. These are files only, meaning that they have no verbs in them. An example of this is "restore-errors".
