/** A filesystem for accessing the local mbed Microcontroller USB disk drive
* This allows programs to read and write files on the same disk drive that is used to program the
* mbed Microcontroller. Once created, the standard C file access functions are used to open,
* read and write files.
* @note Synchronization level: Thread safe
* Example:
* @code
* #include "mbed.h"
* LocalFileSystem local("local"); // Create the local filesystem under the name "local"
* int main() {
* FILE *fp = fopen("/local/out.txt", "w"); // Open "out.txt" on the local file system for writing
* fprintf(fp, "Hello World!");
* fclose(fp);
* remove("/local/out.txt"); // Removes the file "out.txt" from the local file system
* DIR *d = opendir("/local"); // Opens the root directory of the local file system
* struct dirent *p;
* while((p = readdir(d)) != NULL) { // Print the names of the files in the local file system
* printf("%s\n", p->d_name); // to stdout.
* }
* closedir(d);
* }
* @endcode
* @note
* If the microcontroller program makes an access to the local drive, it will be marked as "removed"
* on the Host computer. This means it is no longer accessible from the Host Computer.
* The drive will only re-appear when the microcontroller program exists. Note that if the program does
* not exit, you will need to hold down reset on the mbed Microcontroller to be able to see the drive again!
