P.2.1.4 System Dependent Requirements

The reader shall not depend on any system dependent requirements as specified in UDF to be able to read the DICOM File-set, and shall not behave differently if they are present. Any unrecognized system dependent requirements shall be gracefully ignored.

Creators and updaters writing to a version of UDF that supports Named Streams shall use the default stream to write each file within the DICOM File-set.

Notes: 1. For example, a particular form of file permissions, particular extended attributes or particular named streams may not be required or affect application behavior.

2. This does not mean that Extended Attributes or Named Streams may not be present and associated with files within the DICOM File-set.
