The whole-dollar price of a bid or offer is referred to as the handle (e.g., if a security is quoted at 101.10 bid and 101.11 offered, 101 is the handle. In this example, the market is then simply quoted as 'ten to eleven', as in '.10 to .11'.) Traders are assumed to know the handle. See: Full.
1. On an exchange, a point in price change. For example, if stock goes from $11 to $10, it is said to drop a handle.
When removing a directory entry, the on-disk directory entry's inode pointer must be nullified before the corresponding on-disk inode's link count is decremented (possibly freeing the inode for reuse).
Unreferenced inodes may not appear in the free inode maps.
Inode link counts may exceed the actual number of associated directory entries, which can lead to unclaimed blocks and inodes over time.
