An overcomplete density functional formalism is derived to represent the thermal behaviour of confined classical fluids under single-file conditions. Strictly one-dimensional hard rod systems are reanalysed from this viewpoint, and the context is then broadened to encompass hard spheres in cylindrical enclosures. Applications to non-single-file conditions, modulated enclosures, and confined polymers are mentioned.
