AVFS ! ?

A Virtual Filesystem

------------------------------
What is AVFS
AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside archived or compressed files, or access remote files without recompiling the programs or changing the kernel.

At the moment it supports floppies, tar and gzip files, zip, bzip2, ar and rar files, ftp sessions, http, webdav, rsh/rcp, ssh/scp. Quite a few other handlers are implemented with the Midnight Commander's external FS.

AVFS is (C) under the GNU GPL (see the file COPYING). The shared library supporting AVFS with LD_PRELOAD is (C) under the GNU LGPL (see the file COPYING.LIB).

AVFS comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY, for details see the file COPYING.
------------------------------

FUSE userland driver... nope, it would be even simpler to rewrite the whole thing to create a IFS driver than porting it. But you can ask for a Dokan driver which noone here would make off it, too.
ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

well, i have think for have a driver where makes possible for
going in the compressed packages and execute programms and so on
and i have read this and had thinke by me, oh well, it's maybe a possible for
have a "virtual File systems" for go into the whole compressed files ..
without need an extra packer/compressor where can install later as enahnced programm :)
So, behind the installing the possible for go into the whole
R:\downloaded\\compressed.rar(zip,andsoon)\format\files\and\runme.exe
for have easy a possible for an more easyer way :) What was in Win with zip, can be in all formats in Reactos.
:mrgreen:
But.. a userland-driver in this case it's maybe better as a Systemwide decompressor/VFS driver in this case,
because if something compresses, should it also stay compressed and not able for the system (for hold the system clean),
only by user .. on something..
only as suggestion ..
