so you can run all types of commands on compressed files
AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside gzip, tar, zip, etc. files or view remote (ftp, http, dav, etc.) files, without recompiling the programs.
mountavfs loads the avfsd daemon and mounts the virtual
filesystem at ~/.avfs.
Once done, the user will be able to access all kinds of com-
pressed files via the pseudo-fs ~/.avfs.
Testing the installation:
1) type mountavfs
a message should appear that avfs is loaded.
The README docs indicate that testing can be done as
ls /#avfsstat. This will not work. Using this version of
Anytime the docs say /#avfsstat or filename#, always prepend
- or -
Make sure no files are being accessed via AVFS. Then:
fusermount -u ~/.avfs
This will unmount the virtual filesystem AND unload the
avfsd daemon. The user can start AVFS anytime later.
