Projects / Fosfat


Fosfat is a C library for providing read-only access to a Smaky formatted disk. Currently, only a tool and a FUSE extension that use this library can be used for reading a directory and copying a file. Smaky is a system developed in Switzerland at the EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne).
