An access-type of "local-file" indicates that the actual body is accessible as a file on the local machine. An access-type of "afs" indicates that the file is accessible via the global AFS file system. In both cases, only a single parameter is required:

      NAME -- The name of the file that contains the actual body data.

The following optional parameter may be used to describe the locality of reference for the data, that is, the site or sites at which the file is expected to be visible:

      SITE -- A domain specifier for a machine or set of machines that
      are known to have access to the data file.  Asterisks may be used
      for wildcard matching to a part of a domain name, such as
      "*", to indicate a set of machines on which the data
      should be directly visible, while a single asterisk may be used to
      indicate a file that is expected to be universally available,
      e.g., via a global file system.
