Description Miguel Gocobachi 2021-04-24 06:13:08 UTC
It is a simple detection of the BeOS filesystem

The revision can be found here:

Also, I am still thinking to use bfs or befs for the name, suggestions are welcome. This is the first contribution I am doing to the FreeBSD src, so I appreciate any guidance.

After checking different softwares and implementation I chose BeFS, disktype uses it, Linux and others.

Is there FUSE (or other) support for the filesystem?

Yes, befs-fuse very old for some linux using ppa.

btw I have plans to add support for BeFS with vfs or maybe fuse (but this does not work for me, at least is not loading the fuse.ko module on FreeBSD-13). But, since this is my very first contribution to the src, I should start with something simpler like fstyp, also to learn the style and guidance.
