* Create man pages and/or documentation for AFF library functions (e.g. ,<tt>af_open</tt>, <tt>af_get_imagesize</tt>)

+
* Build library as a shared library using libtool. This will allow developers using the library to just link to the AFF. Without it, developers must link to the static library and the individual libraries necessary <em>on that machine</em>. There is no good way to determine those extra libraries.

+
* Document that <tt>af_write</tt> may not be called without first setting the <tt>image_pagesize</tt> value inside of the <tt>AFFILE</tt> structure. Not doing so causes a divide by zero error. Perhaps we should 1. Check that <tt>image_pagesize</tt> is not zero and 2. Set <tt>image_pagesize</tt> to a known good default value when opening a new AFF file for writing.

* How about renaming the library to libaff? That would allow developers to link with <tt>-laff</tt> instead of <tt>-lafflib</tt>. To my knowledge, there is no existing library named AFF already.

:: Response: The problem with doing this is that we have AFFLIB.ORG; AFF.ORG is the Arab Film Festival.

+
* Is there a set of segment names that must be defined to have a ''valid'' AFF file?
+
 
+
* Document that <tt>af_open</tt> (when writing a file) does more than a standard <tt>fopen</tt> command. The command writes an AFF stub of some kind to the output file. Users should be cautioned not to use this function as a test, lest they overwrite data.
+
 
+
* Does <tt>af_open</tt> refuse to open a file for writing if it already exists? If so, what kind of error does it return?
+
 
+
* Document how to programmatically enumerate all segments and values in a file. That is, explain how to get the output of <tt>$ afinfo -a</tt>.

* Add library function to open standard input. Perhaps:

+
<pre>AFFILE * af_open_stdin(void);</pre>

EncFS provides an encrypted file system in user-space. It runs without any special permissions and uses the FUSE library and Linux kernel module to provide the file system interface.
