in thread Virtual Disk for Perl

I bet this script uses loopbacks which is quite standart method to mount ordinary files with filesystems on Linux (no idea if similar feature exist on other Unix-like systems).

    Loopbacks are implemented in BSD systems. I don't have much experiance with commercial *nix, but I'm guessing it's available pretty much everywhere. You could probably get one on Win32 if you really tried (not easily, mind you).
