Wow, can't believe I just discovered this... so insanely useful.

Forgot to write this in the readme but the env variable for the cache directory is in version 53.1 now called XADFS_CACHE_DIR instead of XADFS_TEMP_DIR as it was before.

Thank you so much for adding MountXAD! (It does work very well using this as the default tool for archives.)

mountxad dh0:work/myfile.lha
mountxad dh0:work/myotherfile.lha
mountxad dh0:downloads/myotherfile.lha

The xad virtual device would then have this directory structure:

But if you mount many files from dh0, then how it will be represented ?
xad:dh0.1 xad:dh0.2 and so on ?

Hmm, how about making it behave as one single virtual file system instead? Each mount would represent itself as a directory entry in the xad: device. Much like ftpmount.


mounting dh0:work/myfile.lha would be exposed as:


mounting a second file dh1:downloads/2010/anotherfile.lha:


At this point a "dir xad:" would display


This way a file manager (such as the filer) would just have to mount a file and then just jump to the correct path without having to keep track of which number the file was mounted as (xad0: xad1: etc).
