This question already has an answer here:
- “Junctioned” symbolic links [duplicate] 2 answers
Let's say that I have files
f1, ..., f9. I want to create a single view -- or a soft link -- say
f, that displays a concatenated view over the 9 files.
For example, if I execute
wc -l f the answer should be the sum of all individual
wc -l fi for i in 1 to 9. If I edit any single file
fi then the view
f should automatically update, such as its modification time. So basically
f is a soft link that tracks a sequence of files.
Is there any filesystem that supports something like this?
