a RAR reading file system

Project description

PyarrFS is a FUSE based file system to access the content of RAR archives as if they were just normal files and directories. PyarrFS owes technically to FUSE and rarfile, while the idea originates out of YarrFS - a similar file system written a few years back by a colleague (and based on my idea).

This code was inspired by the example written by Jeff Epler and Csaba Henk. Thank you!

Thanks to the folks who wrote FUSE and thanks to Marko Kreen for putting together rarfile!

PyarrFS is developed on Ubuntu and is thus known to work on that platform together with fairly recent versions of Debian. Other Linux platforms are also likely to work. Have you tried it on a different platform, please do tell :)
