Re: Looking for a simple write-only file system

Hi all!

I guess the main question here is whether the file system should be
or not. If not, then a simple directory in the begining of the file is
but if you want to expand it, there is no place to expand the directory.

For my GeckOS/A65 I wrote a small ROM filesystem that is linked by
the size of the next segment (file) at the start, so the file handler
jump from one to the next segment. Using an $FFFF as end marker gave me
the possibility to expand the (EP)ROM by overburning just the next part
from the empty EPROM $FF value to the data values :-)
