Flash filesystems

The Neutrino flash filesystem drivers implement a POSIX-compatible filesystem on NOR flash memory devices.

The flash filesystem drivers are standalone executables that contain both the flash filesystem code and the flash device code. There are versions of the flash filesystem driver for different embedded systems hardware as well as PCMCIA memory cards.

Note: Flash filesystems don't include . and .. entries for the current and parent directories.

The naming convention for the drivers is devf-system, where system describes the embedded system. For example, the devf-800fads driver is for the 800FADS PowerPC evaluation board. For information about these drivers, see the devf-* entries in the Utilities Reference.
