     ott - FACE object architecture information

     The  FACE  object  architecture  stores  information   about
     object-types in an ASCII file named .ott (object type table)
     that is contained in each directory. This file describes all
     of the objects in that directory. Each line of the .ott file
     contains information  about  one  object  in  pipe-separated
     fields.  The fields are (in order):

     name  the name of the actual system file.

     dname the name that should be displayed to the  user,  or  a
           dot if it is the same as the name of the file.

           the description  of  the  object,  or  a  dot  if  the
           description is the default (the same as object-type).

           the FACE internal object type name.

     flags object specific flags.

     mod time
           the time that FACE last modified the object. The  time
           is  given  as number of seconds since 1/1/1970, and is
           in hexadecimal notation.

     object information
           an  optional  field,  contains  a  set  of  semi-colon
           separated  name=value  fields that can be used by FACE
           to store any other information necessary  to  describe
           this object.

     .ott is created in any directory opened by FACE.
