Scronfs is a simple archiver (virtual file system) which runs in user-mode and can be used to pack files into one file. It is possible to read data from the archive without unpacking it, or to unpack the entire archive. It also supports the use of filters to encrypt/decrypt data on the fly. Scronfs can be used in game development, where one wants to pack a set of data such as textures or models into one concrete file and then use a set of functions to access the individual files from the archive.
