2 =================

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

23 COPYRIGHT AND LICENCE
24
25 This is contributed to the FUSE project by Mark Glines <mark@glines.org>,
26 and is therefore subject to the same license and copyright as FUSE itself.
27 Please see the AUTHORS and COPYING files from the FUSE distribution for
28 more information.

31 EXAMPLES
32
33 There are a few example scripts. You can find them in the examples/
34 subdirectory. These are:
35
36 * example.pl, a simple "Hello world" type of script
37
38 * loopback.pl, a filesystem loopback-device. like fusexmp from
39 the main FUSE dist, it simply recurses file operations
40 into the real filesystem. Unlike fusexmp, it only
41 re-shares files under the /tmp/test directory.
42
43 * rmount.pl, an NFS-workalike which tunnels through SSH. It requires
44 an account on some ssh server (obviously), with public-key
45 authentication enabled. (if you have to type in a password,
46 you don't have this. man ssh_keygen.). Copy rmount_remote.pl
47 to your home directory on the remote machine, and create a
48 subdir somewhere, and then run it like:
49 ./rmount.pl host /remote/dir /local/dir
50
51 * rmount_remote.pl, a ripoff of loopback.pl meant to be used as a backend
52 for rmount.pl.
53
54
55 BUGS
56
57 I've begun to build a formal testing framework. Currently it can mount
58 and unmount loopback.pl, and all of the base-level functions have test
59 scripts. These need to be fleshed out as problems are noticed.
60
61 The current test framework seems to work well, but the underlying mount/
62 unmount infrastructure is a crock. I am not pleased with that code.
63
64 While most things work, I do still have a TODO list:
65 * "du -sb" reports a couple orders of magnitude too large a size.
66 * need to sort out cleaner mount semantics for the test framework
67 * figure out how to un-linuxcentrify the statfs tests
68 * test everything on other architectures and OS's
