I want to save notes against a file on linux. I want to save meta data about a file, because the file names are restricted in max length.
so how to save notes or comments about a file on linux so that it gets saved along with the file itself...
i used the notes tab in the file properties dialogbox.. but that way the notes stick to the file only on that OS only.. if i open that file in another linux os.. those comments/notes are gone...
please suggest me a way to embedd these notes into the file so that i dont lose them ever..
at lease a solution that makes this possible on switching linux distros. if its not portable enough that these notes stick b/w windows and linux its ok for me.. but atleast if i format my linux os.. atleast i shouldnt lose those important notes..and be able to access on newer linux..
and i also have no idea if this notes tab was implemented to be linked with the OS only.. i dont see much use of it.. and a normal user also has noway to know this.. i also came to know on superuser chat from a buddy.. @Sathya .. this thing is more useless especially if u use ubuntu which has 6 months timeline..and crazy people like me who are always eager to upgrade their os as soon a new one is available..
and any way i can search these notes from the terminal?? that would be awsome too..
kindly help.. Thanks.
