NAME
clicfs - Mount Clic
SYNOPSIS
clicfs [-m mb] [-l logfile|-] [-c cowfile] [-o fuse options] clic mntpoint
DESCRIPTION
Clic FS is a FUSE file system to mount a Compressed Loop Image Container. It has several features that make it a good choice for live systems. It will compress a Loop Image and export it as read write, creating a copy on write behaviour. The clic argument is the actual Container, it has to be generated by mkclicfs and the mntpoint can be any directory. The compressed content is actually read only (as with most compressed file systems), but if a write happens, the data is either stored in memory (with -m) or written into a cowfile (with -c). The container is seen in the mount point as actually larger than the original file, so it can be resizes to match the memory available.
