an update on the `UDF project' as it progresses; I've started with the UDF
dumper and generic UDF filingsystem support routines for a userland tool.
This userland tool is now finished for read access.
The only delay that recently came in was that i just finished UDF 2.01
reading support but then discovered that just a week ago after a three
years of silence of the OSTA, UDF 2.50 came out! Not that many
changes/additions but i'm now getting support for UDF 2.50 in it too.
The write part is mostly analysed and i'm now trying to find a way to not
bluntly keep rewriting those ``precious'' CD/DVD media but kind of support
The kernel reading in has been a bit delayed due to lack of energy; i think
the best way to start is to get a pseudodevice going for now since the
reactions on adding a system call were not that enthousiastically taken.
The next step will be to get it to analyse CD/DVD/HD/files to check if i
can manage to get it to issue SCSI commands on the devices and read from
devices/files. This can then be used as a start for accessing filesystem
P.S. i might not be able to work on it much due to holidays (give this guy
a break too ;) ) but maybe i can work a bit on the userland tools since
that doesnt demand sitting near the machine for the reset button :-P
