The Plastic File System Publisher's description
from Peter Miller
The Plastic File System uses FUSE to manipulate what the file system looks like for user programs.
The Plastic File System uses FUSE to manipulate what the file system looks like for user programs. These virtual file systems exist in user space, and no kernel hacks or modules (other than FUSE) are required.
PlasticFS includes the following file systems:
The dos filter may be used to simulate an 8.3 DOS file system.
The log filter may be used to transparently log file system access, similar to the strace(1) command.
The shortname filter may be used to simulate file systems with shorter filenames.
The smartlink filter may be used to expand environment variables in symbolic links, using the usual $name notation.
upcase, downcase, titlecase and nocase
The upcase filter to make file names appear to be in upper-case when listed. File names are case-insensitive when being opened, etc. The downcase filter is similar, except it converts to lower-case, titlecase capitalizes, and nocase is simply case insensitive without altering the filenames.
The viewpath filter may be used to make a set of directory trees look like a single directory tree. (Also known as a union file system.) All modifications take place in the first directory in the list.
Aka: union and translucent
Filters may be piped from one to the next, forming powerful combinations.
PlasticFS is self configuring using a GNU Autoconf generated configure script.
