in different code
Different from what? Whence comes this code, and what purpose does it fullfil?
11 blksize preferred block size for file system I/OThe value 16384 comes from left-shift, it's 1<<14 Bytes or 2**14 Bytes or 16 kB. The expression you posted means:
If this filehandle's file system (if any) has no preference about I/O blocksize, I'll just use 16 kB.
Could be for socket I/O - hard to tell without context.
Note, your system is binary (hence 2) and 7 is a magic number (hence 14) :-)
