vfs-filesystems - Filesystems provided by tclvfs SYNOPSIS
package require Tcl 8.4 package require vfs ?1.2.1? package require vfs::zip ?1.0? package require vfs::mk4 ?1.6? package require vfs::tar ?0.9? package require vfs::ftp ?1.0? package require vfs::ns ?1.0? package require vfs::webdav ?0.1? package require vfs::http ?0.5? package require vfs::urltype ?1.0? vfs::zip::Mount path to vfs::mk4::Mount path to vfs::tar::Mount path to vfs::ftp::Mount path to vfs::ns::Mount path to vfs::webdav::Mount path to vfs::http::Mount path to vfs::urltype::Mount path to _________________________________________________________________ DESCRIPTION
The package vfs provides not only the means to implement a virtual filesystem at the tcl level, but also a number of ready to be used filesystems as well. Each of these filesystem exists as its own package, and can be accessed through package require vfs::NAME. The whole set of these virtual filesystems is known informally as 'vfslib'. SUPPORTED VFS TYPES
Currently supported are ftp, tar, http, zip, mk4, ns, and webdav. In addition there is the ability to mount any 'urltype' as a new direc- tory, provided an appropriate vfs is supported. This means that you can treat urls based on the schemes ftp://, http:// and file:// as files. To do this, simply evaluate the command vfs::urltype::Mount ftp for example. Any access inside the new volume will result in an attempt to require a package through package require vfs::${type}, which must therefore exist, or errors will be thrown. If a filesystem is loaded, use the associated command listed below to mount a source for that filesystem as a tcl directory. vfs::zip::Mount path to Mount the zip file path as directory to. vfs::mk4::Mount path to Mount the metakit database file file path as directory to. vfs::tar::Mount path to Mount the tar file path as directory to. vfs::ftp::Mount path to Mount the ftp url path as directory to. vfs::ns::Mount path to Mount the tcl namespace path as directory to. vfs::webdav::Mount path to Mount the webdav url path as directory to. vfs::http::Mount path to Mount the http url path as directory to. vfs::urltype::Mount path to Mount the url path, of type urltype as directory to. LIMITATIONS
Most of the vfs types listed above have not been very well debugged as yet. Please test them! SEE ALSO

gnome-vfs.applications - GNOME VFS application registry DESCRIPTION
The GNOME MIME magic and MIME info files (see gnome-vfs-mime-magic(4)) enable GNOME VFS to associate a data file with its icon and descrip- tion. The GNOME VFS application registry provides a way to launch the applications associated with such files. The registration of applications to various MIME types is specified in text files placed in the /usr/share/gnome/application-registry directory. GNOME provides a default registry file called gnome-vfs.applications. Vendor-specific registry files can also be placed in this directory. This information is used extensively by nautilus(1), the GNOME file manager. EXTENDED DESCRIPTION
The format of the application registry file is simple. Each application entry is made up of a name followed by a number of key-value pairs. The application name must have been specified in one of the .keys files. The minimum required key fields are as follows: command The command to execute. name The descriptive name of the command, which will appear in the Open With menu in Nautilus. can_open_multiple_files The value of this field can be true or false. expects_uris The value of this field can be true or false. This field tells Nautilus whether the application can accept http:, ftp: and so on specifications to open at the command line. If this is true, you must add the supported_uri_schemes field. requires_terminal The value of this field can be true or false. mime_types The list of comma-separated mime-types defined by MIME magic or MIME info files. Optional field: supported_uri_schemes Specifies the list of protocols supported by the application; for example, http, ftp, file, telnet, gopher. EXAMPLES
Example 1: Registering CDE Imagetool with GNOME Application Registry sdtimage command=sdtimage name=sdtimage can_open_multiple_files=false expects_uris=false requires_terminal=false mime_types=image/tiff,image/gif,application/postscript,image/jpeg,x-xpixmap Example 2: Registering Netscape with GNOME Application Registry netscape command=netscape name=Netscape can_open_multiple_files=true expects_uris=true requires_terminal=false supported_uri_schemes=file,http,ftp,telnet,gopher mime_types=text/html,x-directory/webdav,x-directory/webdav-prefer-directory,image/gif,image/jpeg ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES
