Projects / fuse.gunzip


fuse.gunzip is a filesystem for FUSE that provides transparent decompression of files. The goal is to expedite reading of files by reducing both file size and fragmentation. fuse.gunzip is not a real filesystem such as ext2 or ext3. fuse.gunzip is a virtual proxy filesystem. Compressed files appear as uncompressed when read by the kernel or processes through fuse.gunzip. Any type of file can be compressed.

    Release Notes: Since writable shared mmaped files are not supported by fuse, the reduce program no longer uses writable shared mmaped files by default to avoid a problem when compressing files on the fuse.gunzip mount point or a bind to the fuse.gunzip mount point.
