NNFS (Non-Networked File System)
NNFS provide a consistent file system over several
non networked UNIX computers (or slow networked).
For example on your computer at home and at work
using only a floppy disk for the synchronisation.
The NNFS advantages
- You are sure to work on the latest version of files.
- You don't need to remember which files are modified on
an host and must be transfered on others.
- You don't need to made backup, because if a computer crash
the file system is still on the other computers working with NNFS.
- The NNFS medium is choosen by a user shell script,
it could be: floppy disk, usb key, serial connection, ...
- Minimal NNFS medium bandwidth to make the updates.
- EASY TO USE: Running ``nnfs'' command before and after your work.
- Numbered backup of files modified/deleted on NNFS.
- If you modify the same file on several hosts
NNFS solves the update conflict.
- The program has been hugely tested.

The change log.
This version of NNFS compile and run on:
- Linux (Debian): compiled, tested and used for years
- HPUX 10.20: compiled and tested
- IRIX: compiled and tested
- Mac OS X: compiled, problems remaining :
- Mac OS X doesn't store the modification date
of symbolics links.
- for Mac OS X, "README" and "Readme" are
the same file. So there is
mirroring problems between Mac
and other Unixes.
