Witme-fileutils is a version of GNU fileutils that builds as a shared library. If this gets merged into the main GNU fileutils, then this project will live on as the integration of libsigc++ and other glib based signal styles to complement the base callback functionality currently available. This version is a staging ground for new ideas and code to be implemented with the possible integration into GNU fileutils to be handled as time allows.
libferris is a virtual filesystem that exposes hierarchical data of all kinds through a common C++ interface. Access to data is performed using C++ IOStreams and metadata is available as key-value pairs through the Extended Attributes (EA) interface. Rich support for filesystem indexing is included to provide timely search results for well into millions of files. Ferris uses a plugin API to handle a large range of data sources, metadata, and index and search strategies. Filesystems include file:// with monitoring, XML (mount an XML file as a filesystem), relational databases, ISAM databases (Berkeley db, tdb, gdbm, eet et al), xmldb, LDAP, Applications (Evolution, Firefox, Emacs), HTTP, FTP, sockets, and RDF (from XML, binary, soprano). EA generators include image, audio, and animation decoders.
The Enterprise Volume Management System (EVMS) Project has the goal of providing unparalleled flexibility and extensibility in managing storage. It represents a new approach to logical volume management, as the architecture introduces a plug-in model that allows for easy expansion or customization of various levels of volume management.
format floppy formats your floppies with different capacities of 1440 kBytes or above. Even floppies with an original size of only 1440 kBytes can be reformatted. Now it is possible to save, and to transport a file whose size would normally be too large. Additionally, format floppy creates a file system of your choice on the floppy. You can choose between FAT-12, FAT-16, FAT-32, ext2, and minix. If you want to use the disk with DOS or Windows, FAT-12 is the best option.
The zisofs filesystem is an extension to the ISO9660 filesystem that allows files, on a file-by-file basis, to be stored compressed and decompressed in real time. The zisofs filesystem is supported by recent versions of Linux (2.4.14 or later). Legacy systems can still read uncompressed files. zisofs-tools contains the tools necessary to create such a compressed ISO9660 filesystem and to read compressed files on a legacy system.
