Fuse version 0.05
=================

This is a test release.  It seems to work quite well.  In fact, I can't
find any problems with it whatsoever.  If you do, I want to know.


INSTALLATION

To install this module type the standard commands as root:

   perl Makefile.PL
   make
   make test
   make install


DEPENDENCIES

This module requires the FUSE userspace library and the FUSE kernel module.
See http://fuse.sourceforge.net/


COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE

This is contributed to the FUSE project by Mark Glines <mark@glines.org>,
and is therefore subject to the same license and copyright as FUSE itself.
Please see the AUTHORS and COPYING files from the FUSE distribution for
more information.


EXAMPLES

There are a few example scripts.  You can find them in the examples/
subdirectory.  These are:

* example.pl, a simple "Hello world" type of script

* loopback.pl, a filesystem loopback-device.  like fusexmp from
               the main FUSE dist, it simply recurses file operations
               into the real filesystem.  Unlike fusexmp, it only
               re-shares files under the /tmp/test directory.

* rmount.pl, an NFS-workalike which tunnels through SSH.  It requires
             an account on some ssh server (obviously), with public-key
             authentication enabled.  (if you have to type in a password,
             you don't have this.  man ssh_keygen.).  Copy rmount_remote.pl
             to your home directory on the remote machine, and create a
             subdir somewhere, and then run it like:
             ./rmount.pl host /remote/dir /local/dir

* rmount_remote.pl, a ripoff of loopback.pl meant to be used as a backend
                    for rmount.pl.


BUGS

I've begun to build a formal testing framework.  Currently it can mount
and unmount loopback.pl, and all of the base-level functions have test
scripts.  These need to be fleshed out as problems are noticed.

The current test framework seems to work well, but the underlying mount/
unmount infrastructure is a crock.  I am not pleased with that code.

While most things work, I do still have a TODO list:
* "du -sb" reports a couple orders of magnitude too large a size.
* need to sort out cleaner mount semantics for the test framework
* figure out how to un-linuxcentrify the statfs tests
* test everything on other architectures and OS's

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
