cusexmp, the example of CUSE program, works.

Is there real programs that makes use of it?

For example, a thing that just mirrors other character device or thing that allows networked character devices.

How about this one:


It emulates OSS (Open Sound System) /dev/dsp e.t.c. device nodes and forwards all operations to pulseaudio. I believe this was (one of) the first applications, if not the motivation, for CUSE.
