Hi,

I have a pile of sealed venti arenas on an a usb stick, and the last fossil score.

is there any reasonable way I can view the dump filesystem from these with a readonly
filesystem without:
        formatting a filesystem to take them
        building indexes
        running venti
        finally running vacfs

what I would like is a vacfs like tool that can read the arenas, build the index in RAM and provide a 9p interface.

any chance?

-Steve

11 years ago Russ posted a program called ventino that keeps
its index in RAM. May be you can use it as a starting point?

How is this different from running venti with a ramdisk for your isect?
