Only two functions must be provided to interface the native block load/save routines by a given filename.
The trick is to add an extra character (0..Z) to the filename to create virtual file blocks; the block size is set to 1K by default but it can be different on every single 'random access file'.
The underscore character is used to create a "control file" keeping the file properties: its size, the size to be set for a single block, etc..
(file splitting/merging tools will be provided)
At the moment I tested this library with S-OS:
Code: Select all
