NAME

       al_set_physfs_file_interface - Allegro 5 API

SYNOPSIS

              #include <allegro5/allegro_physfs.h>

              void al_set_physfs_file_interface(void)

DESCRIPTION

       This      function      sets      both     the     ALLEGRO_FILE_INTERFACE(3alleg5)     and
       ALLEGRO_FS_INTERFACE(3alleg5) for the calling thread.

       Subsequent  calls  to  al_fopen(3alleg5)  on  the  calling  thread  will  be  handled   by
       PHYSFS_open().   Operations  on  the  files  returned  by  al_fopen(3alleg5)  will then be
       performed  through  PhysicsFS.   Calls  to  the  Allegro  filesystem  functions,  such  as
       al_read_directory(3alleg5)  or  al_create_fs_entry(3alleg5), on the calling thread will be
       diverted to PhysicsFS.

       To   remember    and    restore    another    file    I/O    backend,    you    can    use
       al_store_state(3alleg5)/al_restore_state(3alleg5).

              Note:     due     to     an     oversight,     this     function    differs    from
              al_set_new_file_interface(3alleg5)   and    al_set_standard_file_interface(3alleg5)
              which only alter the current ALLEGRO_FILE_INTERFACE(3alleg5).

              Note:  PhysFS  does not support the text-mode reading and writing, which means that
              Windows-style newlines will not be preserved.
