Information for virtual memory file system


I am looking for some open source code/project for any virtual memory file system that can be accessed directly by applications. Linux kernel 2.4 already supports this feature on OS level with "tmpfs". However, my application runs on VxWorks (an embedded real-time OS), so that I need a standalone library to provide such functionality.

If you have heard of or used any library that can write and read files onto virtual memory so that the size of the file system can dynamically be adjusted on RAM as needed, could you please send me some information. I apprecaite it.

Thank you,

Will tmpfs not work? What about a ramdisk?
