       libgnomevfs-2 - GNOME Virtual File System

       GnomeVFS is obsolete.  It has been superseded by libgio-2.0.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 compre-
       hensive 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, detect-
       ing 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.
