httpfs2 - mount a file from a http server into the filesystem
httpfs2 [OPTIONS] URL FUSE-OPTIONS httpfs2_ssl [OPTIONS] URL
httpfs2 is a FUSE based filesystem for mounting http or https URLS as
files in the filesystem. There is no notion of listable directories in
http so only a single URL can be mounted. The server must be able to
send byte ranges.
Attempt to use the file ior device console for output after fork.
The default is /dev/console.
Do not fork, stay in foreground.
Use different timeout for connections. Default '30’s.
The url should specify the protocol as http or https, and it may
specify basic authentication username and password. Currently
special characters like whitespace are not handled so the URL
cannot contain them. See a sample URL below:
These options are passed to the FUSE library. At the very least the
mount point should be specified.
Successfully connected to the server
Failure (url parsing error, server error, FUSE setup error). Some
FUSE errors may happen only after the process forks so they will
not be returned in exit value.
The process can be stopped by typing ^Z on the terminal which may not
be desirable under some circumstances.
