Swap file was originally designed for cl-btree to manage disk blocks.
Swap file provides mechanism to create a stream for reading and
writing and the stream is automatically converted to a managed
sequence of disk blocks. See the unit tests for more detail.
Swap file uses cl-wal which provides simple write-ahead log for the
swap file. cl-wal works as a journal providing atomicy and durability
for a stored data.
Current implementation has been tested with SBCL. Project was
originally at alien-consader.org and is now made available at
cl-swap-file depends on following projects:
- cl-binary-file (http://cl-binary-file.sourceforge.net),
- cl-wal (http://cl-wal.sourceforge.net),
cl-swap-file no longer depends on following projects:
- cl-unit-test (http://cl-unit-test.sourceforge.net),
- cl-toolbox (http://cl-toolbox.sourceforge.net).
cl-swap-file is utilized in cl-btree and clufs projects.
