Do you know any good filesystem library?

please no PhysFS (C, nice but can't be extended without much effort and anyway does not provide polymorphic interfaces)

please no boost (heavy, hard to build, can't easily get only the file system dropping the rest of the library)

 

Possible there are only 2 filesystem libraries around all the net?

The site is not Google.

Both PhysFS and Boost filesystem come with complete source. Lack of polymorphism is disingenuous, since if that is all it required you could add a trivial wrapper. The complaint about Boost being hard to build is similarly petty, since boost maintainers are very strict about ensuring the system builds properly under nearly any situation; you should be able to download, run a config script, and immediately build every boost package.

You haven't given us anything about what you want, you merely complained about two very popular options.

Tell us what you think you need, what specifically you have already tried, in what ways you have already tried to adapt the existing solutions, and the specific failings it has had in your situation. Then we can reasonably suggest alternates.

Without that, all we can do is search our favorite search engines, just like you.
