could someone explain me the difference between netbsd and linux when
trying to read directory as file (for example when typing cat <directory>
by accident).
linux gives that it's directory not file and refused which i think it's

but with netbsd i CAN read directory as file and got binary output from

what is it used for and what about security issues? could directory be
written directly too?!
