[opensuse] Remote files using SSHFS without mounting
I know about SSHFS.
I know how to mount using FUSE and all that.
This isn't what I'm asking about.

I'm asking how to access a file on the command line without mounting.

I can run

$ scp localfile anton@remotesystem:remotefile

What I want to do is that in a general sense, for example

$ diff localfile anton@remotesystem:remotefile
$ tail anton@remotesystem:remotefile


Yes, I've googled and there is a tremendous amount of stuff abut
mounting. I got tired of paging through it all.

This strikes me as such an obviously and useful mode of operation,
surely someone has met this before.

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out,
which is the exact opposite.
