Why a file system? The answer is a question "Have you seen one
on your SDK?". With PCs i was used to files moving around the
programmer, with PVs its just the opposite. I didn't want to
leave the old good way :)
Why on the earth should we write a file subsystem for each
application our sleepless nights suggest? The lazy programmer
always solves a class of problems, not just one. adsFS shares
data among the applications, just use its APIs. We get a standard
way once for all.
It is a basic file system, it responds to several needs:
- Assigning a name to every data we store.
- Breaking the 3K/30K barrier of the PV storage system.
- Every partition it creates offers 368640 bytes.
- You don't have to worry about which record your data is in.
- Up to 128 files entries on each partition.
