Kelvin Sherlock, prolific programmer of iShisen, Silver Platter, and PNG Floyd, is now developing ProFUSE, a command line tool for Macintosh OS X that mounts ProDOS-formatted disk images as volumes on the Mac desktop. These volumes are read-only, allowing files from the disk images to be opened and read in any Mac program, or copied or burned to Mac-writable volumes.

ProFUSE, an offshoot of the Google Code program MacFUSE, is an open-source project that can be downloaded from http://code.google.com/p/profuse/. It has been tested on both Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) and 10.5 (Leopard); the source code can also be compiled to run on Linux.
