Im been experimenting with fuse binding for erlang for some time, have
done some progress but it goes quite slowly, its done on my free time.
Current status is that i have a quite working port driver (running as a
separate process) for talking to the fuse kernel module, decode/encode
of the protocol, various help modules for dealing with errnos (to map
errno atoms to numbers) etc.
Just starting to think about/write the equivalent of fuse_lowlevel.c and
My approach is to use libfuse only for mounting and get a open fd to the
fuse device and then do all communication directly from erlang. The
libfuse highlevel API (which most other bindings uses) is either
non-concurrent or uses posix threads for concurrency, which i think
would be bad.
I have no public source repository yet, so just ask and i will send you
(or anyone else interested?) a snapshot.
