You are certainly not the only one concerned with understanding and
facilitating the full functionality of a file system. :-)
My interest, to go along with my article <a
is in developing an "independent" backup validation for Mac HFS+ file
systems. Unfortunately, because of Apple's rsync "handiwork" I'm stuck
at rsync 2.6.3. Even in checking out various Open Source software like
rdiff-backup there does not seem to be much interest in EAs and ACLs,
though at least there is xattr for AEs. Portions of ACL handling,
though, are non-portable.
That is why, after approaching the issue from Python and Bash scripting,
I'm going back to basics. It has been twenty some years since I last
used C, but I'm brushing up now and moving on to ObjC and Cocoa. The
one thing I can say for Apple in this regard is their provided IDE (Xcode).
My "intent" is really more than just validation. As long as I'm pulling
together the functionality, I hope to develop a package with full file
system management capabilities - something along the lines of MC and
Apple's dev tool FileMerge, but with more than two pane functionality.
Something to keep my head busy in my retirement :<))
Keep up the good work,
