Find type of filesystem (*nix/windows)

How can I find in ruby the type of filesystem from a given file? (pseudo
code: FileSystem.type(’/path/to/file’)). I’m especially interested to
know if the fs is networked (nfs, cifs) or on a local disk.

Thank you,

Ittay

I would just ask the system:

currently_mounted = mount

gem install sys-filesystem

Enjoy!
