Newbie question (hopefully not too stupid.)

How do you know when to use /dev/sd0a vs /dev/rsd0a

Found this,
"... The device files would be /dev/sd0a for the block device,
/dev/rsd0a would be the device file for the "raw" (character) device."

Is that like /dev/sda1 vs /dev/sda in Linux, where /dev/sda represents
the whole device, and /dev/sda1 represents the first partition on
