i need to mount at least for read access NTFS-based partition image on linux from a file. File is binary copy of a partition. Is there any libraries or resources for this?

Thank you

It'd be the same process as mounting an ISO image: use the loopback interface but specify NTFS/ntfs-3g as the FS type instead of iso9660.

Example here for ISO images, but trivially modifiable to ntfs images.
