format floppy formats your floppies with different capacities of 1440 kBytes or above. Even floppies with an original size of only 1440 kBytes can be reformatted. Now it is possible to save, and to transport a file whose size would normally be too large. Additionally, format floppy creates a file system of your choice on the floppy. You can choose between FAT-12, FAT-16, FAT-32, ext2, and minix. If you want to use the disk with DOS or Windows, FAT-12 is the best option.
Witme-fileutils is a version of GNU fileutils that builds as a shared library. If this gets merged into the main GNU fileutils, then this project will live on as the integration of libsigc++ and other glib based signal styles to complement the base callback functionality currently available. This version is a staging ground for new ideas and code to be implemented with the possible integration into GNU fileutils to be handled as time allows.
This program runs stat(2) or lstat(2) on each input file and displays the results. By default, stat displays all the attributes returned by stat(2) or lstat(2). Specific attributes can be requested by specifying one of the command-line options. For better integration with scripting languages, the normally human-readable output can be forced to simple, numeric output with a command line option. This utility is inteded to be both command line and output compatible with the utility of the same name on SGI's Irix operating system.
The Extended Universal Resource Locator library provides a complete virtualization of file-like objects. How data is stored is completely transparent to the client, since the library is meant to replace java.io.File. It provides implementations for handling local files, Jar/Zip archives, and XML documents. (Implementations for CVS and FTP are available seperately.) Other storage providers can be written and plugged in. It also provides a merged filesystem implementation that allows multiple hierarchies to appear as one and to override each other in a controlled way. Other features include notification of changes to files, and support for attaching (dynamically updatable) actions to file objects.
StegFS is a steganographic file system for Linux. It offers security beyond that afforded by a regular cryptographic file system, since it not only encrypts data, but also provides a plausible deniability mechanism by securely hiding the data. It is designed to give the user a very high level of protection against being compelled to disclose its contents. StegFS extends the standard Linux file system (ext2fs), allowing normal and several levels of hidden files to coexist. This allows some data to remain hidden even if some of the keys are compromised.
Sharity-Light for Linux is derived from smbfs, but runs as a user level program, not in the kernel. It is roughly the opposite of Samba since it's a client for the Lanmanager protocol. Sharity-Light lets you mount drives exported by Windows (f.Workgroups/95/NT), Lan Manager, OS/2 etc. on Unix machines. The former name of this application was "rumba".
Rio (RAM I/O) for FreeBSD is an implementation of the Rio file cache project at Michigan. The basic idea of Rio is to make memory as safe as disk from operating system crashes. Such "reliable main memory" is useful in a variety of contexts, e.g. file systems, transaction systems, or checkpointing.
