MOUNT_CHFS(8)						    BSD System Manager's Manual 					     MOUNT_CHFS(8)

NAME
mount_chfs -- mount a CHFS flash file system SYNOPSIS
mount_chfs DESCRIPTION
Mounts a flash file system from a flash(4) device. CHFS file systems can be only mounted from flash devices. For regular block devices like SSD drives or USB drives, please use a regular file system. The file system will be created during the first mount. CHFS stands for Chip File System. EXAMPLES
mount_chfs /dev/flash0 /mnt SEE ALSO
flash(4), fstab(5), mount(8), flash(9) HISTORY
CHFS was originally called ChewieFS during development. The name was changed to avoid legal issues and to have a more neutral name. AUTHORS
CHFS was developed at the Department of Software Engineering, University of Szeged, Hungary. BUGS
CHFS has a few known bugs as of 2011. Writing the FS full can cause problems. Truncating a file and growing it again can cause the new bytes not having all zeroes, but filled with the old content instead. BSD
