Today I was asking a question which was basically about file transformation and while tagging it I looked up file to see if it is appropriate for my question. Unfortunately, there are more than 300 uses, but no tag wiki and the excerpt only gives a brief description of the term file, but no usage guidance:
A block of arbitrary information, or resource for storing information, accessible by the string-based name or path. Files are available to computer programs and are usually based on some kind of persistent storage.
From some of the top voted questions, I assume that the tag should be used for any case where operations on a particular file are performed. Am I correct in assuming so? If yes, shouldn't it be appended to the current usage recommendation? If no, what is the scope of the tag, and shouldn't it be more obvious?
