virtual file entity
Basically I'm looking to be pointed in the right direction. What I'm thinking of is a some kind of file pointer that Windows (specifically Windows CE .Net, WindowsMobile 2003) will treat as a regular local file pointer, but will actually be linked to a remote file via some tcp or udp socket connection. So, basically I want Windows to be able to read the file, but as it's reading it, it would try to get it's contents from a socket connection, instead of the local filesystem. Anyone have any ideas?
