User Space File System

All the while I read about file systems I had a notion that it was some thing that was built into the kernel always.
But when I read about FUSE,  I was pleasantly surprised that it was not the case.
We can implement file systems in the user-space too.
FUSE-- Filesystem in UserSpace. allows you to achieve this, i.e implement filesystem in the user-sapce.

FUSE provides you with a set of API's that let you build your own file system and does not even need you to be the super user.
What is even better is the number of languages it supports.

So you are free to use what ever that you like, no restrictions what so ever. 

The complete details of the FUSE installation and usage can be found at
