The following comment exists in the specs:



In the first place what does it mean by "record number and associated disk storage available for reuse"? If a record is deleted, it is not physically removed from the file, isn't it? All I need to do is set the flag to 0xFF.

Oops I'm so sorry. I got the idea. I just need to change the flag. The next time I create a new record, I merely overwrite the deleted record.

Sorry but I didn't pay enough attention to the create method.
