Good day,

joe> Does anybody know of some software I can use for the following:

joe> I'd really like just the C file manipulation routines fopen/fclose

joe>   I would like applications to be distriubuted with a single data file

joe>  The format of the big file is irrelevant (could be ext2, or zip or anything)

Here are all links I have about the subject.

User space libs:

http://www.gnome.org/mc/ - Midnight Commannder has not so bad libvfs
library.

http://witme.sourceforge.net/libferris.web/ - general purpose, can use
Berkeley DB as file system (in C++).

Kernel space:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/avf -
"AVFS is a system, which enables all programs to look inside gzip,
tar, zip, etc. files or view remote (ftp, http, dav, etc.) files,
without recompiling the programs."

Best Regards,
Vladimir Sekissov
