This is a file system translator (and driver) for compatible Apple IIgs emulators. It depends on emulator support (but should not cause problems if run on real hardware or an unsupportive emulator).
This FST exposes a shared folder from your native file system as a volume within GS/OS. (The volume will not be available from ProDOS 8). Reading or writing a file on the :Host drive will read or write the file directly on the native file system. File Types, Finder Info, and Resource Forks are supported.
In general any software that works with the HFS FST should work with the Host FST.
Currently, only GSPlus (0.13+) has support for the host fst.
See the releases page for a disk image.
Bleeding edge versions of GSPlus have a config option (F4, Host FST Configuration) to select the host fst directory. (On older versions it doesn't work correctly).
If you're using an older version of GSPlus, shutdown GSPlus and manually edit the
config.txtfile. Add a line like:
g_cfg_host_path = /Users/me/IIgs/
Large volume sizes can cause a buffer overflow Finder's code and cause a crash (usually when displaying the File Info window). This is fixed as of System 6.0.4.
