When I am using Java language. I need to look up some material in its official website: The sentence I copy from here. The author of this document give an definition of Java Class File:
An abstract representation of file and directory pathnames.
I feel confused with the above sentence. Does the author means "file" and "directory pathnames" or "file pathnames" and "directory pathnames"? On other words, Is there an ellipsed "pathnames" after "file"?
