FSV

This repo is a fork of fsv. The original author is Daniel Richard G., a former student of Computer Science at the MIT.

About fsv

fsv (pronounced eff-ess-vee) is a file system visualizer in cyberspace. It lays out files and directories in three dimensions, geometrically representing the file system hierarchy to allow visual overview and analysis. fsv can visualize a modest home directory, a workstation's hard drive, or any arbitrarily large collection of files, limited only by the host computer's memory and graphics hardware.

Its ancestor, SGI's fsn (pronounced "fusion") originated on IRIX and was prominently featured in Jurassic Park: "It's a Unix system!".

Screenshots of the original clone are still available.

Useful info and screenshots of the original SGI IRIX implementation are available on siliconbunny.
