= Zetta, Ruby bindings for ZFS Zetta is a C library interface to ZFS, Sun's shiny new Zettabyte File System, which made its debut in OpenSolaris. Apparently now, ports are abound to the stable Solaris 10 release, FreeBSD and the upcoming Mac OS X release. So some Ruby rock star will have to write an interface to use it or the Ruby hordes will be left behind! And we can't have that! *Please read my mind to discover how this library works until I deign to write some better documentation.* == General plan of action Since I just wrote this in an email to somebody else, I figured it might do to be repeated here, at least until I start to produce some better documentation: My C is pretty rusty, so my game plan is to create as thin a wrapper on the existing C API as possible to transport it into Ruby, then to write some nice object-oriented Ruby on top to make it a bit more natural to manipulate the filesystems. That way we stand the least chance of me producing code that'll seg fault. :-) = TODO List * Implement nvlists as a C extension so that I get to screw with them in Ruby instead of trying to figure out how to do it all in C. * The vdev manipulation stuff needs for nvlists to work.
