    reproducing proc

    Is it possible to reproduce a virtual file system like the proc filesystem from linux?

    It must stay in memeory and not moddify the contents of my hard drive, and also be mountable so that other programs can access it. I would also like if other programs can alter the contents of this filesystem.

    Can someone show me how to do this in C if it is possible, or if there is a better programming language that would be better for this purpose.

    File systems are OS level drivers. They can be written in C (most are, in fact) but you are talking about kernel level coding which is not for the meek...
