Strange ! Smilie

Why do you need such a file ?

every file that is created will have a valid inode and ls with its options would be able to display that file

I've got it!!!!

Anyway, in linux, you can write a module that, among other things, coud hide "things" playing with syscalls (rootkits)... But I don't think it's worth it...
