libgnomevfs-2 - GNOME Virtual File System DESCRIPTION
GnomeVFS is obsolete. It has been superseded by libgio-2.0. See libgio-2.0(3). GnomeVFS is a filesystem abstraction library which gives applications plugable transparent access to a variety of "real" filesystems, from WebDAV to digital cameras, to the local filesystem. It also contains a number of other convenient file utilities such as a comprehensive MIME database / Application registry, and a copy engine. Use of GnomeVFS also ensures that an application or component will be usable by Nautilus or other GnomeVFS applications for handling the display of data from various URIs. Besides providing transparent access to data methods that you might otherwise have to implement, GnomeVFS provides a number of convenient libraries for processing URIs, detecting the MIME type of files, and identifying which applications or components to launch to view a file or what icon to use. Writing a GnomeVFS module may also be an appropriate solution to some data access problems as it allows the developer to implement a relatively small number of functions to gain general filesystem semantics. To access the API documentation, you must install the developer version of the package. FILES
