An introduction to Linux inodes...
Inode stores basic information about a regular file, directory, or other file system object. The inode number is a unique integer assigned to the device upon which it is stored.

Many computer programs often give i-node numbers to designate a file. Popular disk integrity checking utilities fsck or pfiles command may serve here as examples.
