In sqlarfs (the Fuse FS driver for SQLite archives) make sure it always runs in the foreground. And after it stops, clean up prepared statements and memory allocations and close the database connection before exiting. check-in: ed4e6af2e8 user: drh tags: trunk

    64     64   Both directories and empty files have sqlar.sz==0.  Directories can be
    65     65   distinguished from empty files because directories have sqlar.data IS NULL.
    66     66   The file is compressed if length(sqlar.blob)<sqlar.sz and is stored
    67     67   as plaintext if length(sqlar.blob)==sqlar.sz.

           70  +
           71  +An SQLite Archive file can be mounted as a 
           72  +[Fuse Filesystem](http://fuse.sourceforge.net) using the "sqlarfs"
           73  +utility, including with this project.
           74  +
           75  +To build the "sqlarfs" utility, run:
           76  +
           77  +        make sqlarfs
           78  +
           79  +Then to mount an SQLite archive as a filesystem, run:
           80  +
           81  +        mkdir ~/fuse
           82  +        ./sqlarfs ARCHIVE_NAME -f ~/fuse
           83  +
           84  +Replace ARCHIVE_NAME with the filename of the SQLite archive file to
           85  +be mounted, of course.
           86  +The -f option keeps sqlarfs running in the foreground, so that you can
           87  +unmount the filesystem by simply pressing the interrupt key (usually
           88  +Ctrl-C).
