What is VFS?


VFS is GNU Smalltalk's Virtual FileSystem layer. VFS allows GNU Smalltalk programs to use archive files (.gz, .tar, .zip, etc.) and URLs transparently. The first implementation of VFS was inspired by the homonymous feature of the Midnight Commander, later incorporated in GNOME and now called GVFS.

VFS is a fundamental part of the implementation of .star packages.
