reserved device names

Microsoft Windows cannot use these file names (And some of these as folders),
because these are reserved device names(printers,modems etc) or registers:

Here are a few,

CON, PRN, AUX, CLOCK$, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, COM4, COM5, COM6, COM7, COM8, COM9, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, LPT4, LPT5, LPT6, LPT7, LPT8, and LPT9
