I recently read in a magazine that there are copies of a
filesystem on linux that supports NTFS or the Windows NT
filesystem. Does anyone know where I can find this, or what
kernel it might be in?
I'll be A LOT interrested by that !
I've only modified the fs/msdos of Linux 1.3.8 for support FAT with
long file name, compatible with long file name of Windows NT 3.5 and
Windows 95. This allow us share a FAT partition and files between
Linux and Windows, with long name...

Gilles Vollant (author of doslfn) and I are planning on working togetherQuote:>I think this particular extension should go into the standard msdos fs of

Actually, it isn't too difficult. umsdos has the ---LINUX.--- in whichQuote:>I agree that umsdos should use the same scheme for long file names. This

The only real difference would be file creation. Umsdos could just
replace its current name mangling scheme with another that allows
VFAT long filenames to be created.

Wouldn't umsdos be a better place to put this? You could have an xdosfs
that supports many ways of extending the FAT system and avoid bloating the
normal msdosfs code. There are many ways to extend the DOS filesystem and
I think the extensions could share some code. There are extensions for
NT, MacOS, OS/2, and Linux.
There is a potential problem with that approach as Posix allows for situationsQuote:>Actually, it isn't too difficult. umsdos has the ---LINUX.--- in which

DDE to TCP/IP Real Time Data Pump
DDE2TCP, is a Real Time Data Pump used as a data bridge
between DDE applications and ANY host system using
TCP/IP (SUN,HP,IBM,Apple, etc). DDE2TCP runs in the
background, totally transparent between server and target
DDE2TCP is perfect for use with any MMI system or spread
sheet such as FIX,WONDERWARE,GENESIS,LabTech,EXCEL,LOTUS
for real time update of SQL databases residing on other hosts.
DDE2TCP comes with it's own configurator for fast and effective
setup. DDE2TCP runs on WINDOWS 3.1,3.11,95 and NT. Site
