LIBPERFUSE(2)						      BSD System Calls Manual						     LIBPERFUSE(2)

perfuse_mount, perfuse_open -- Request a puffs(3) mount from perfused(8) LIBRARY
library ``libperfuse'' SYNOPSIS
#include <perfuse.h> int perfuse_mount(const char *source, const char *dir, const char *filesystemtype, long int mountflags, void *data); int perfuse_open(const char *path, int flags); DESCRIPTION
perfuse_mount() sends a mount request to perfused(8). It is intended as a drop-in replacement for mount(2) for FUSE file systems daemons and libraries, so that they can work with perfused(8). The function prototype mimics Linux's mount(2), with the following arguments: source The source file system that will appear in df(1) and mount(8) listings. Defaults to /dev/fuse if NULL. dir The file system mount point. filesystemtype The file system type, as displayed by df(1) and mount(8). Defaults to ``fuse'' if NULL. mountflags This contains the same value as a mount(2) flags argument. data This contains the same value as a mount(2) data argument. perfuse_open() is a drop-in replacement for the open(2) system call where /dev/fuse is used. If path is different than /dev/fuse, perfuse_open() handles control to the regular open(2). RETURN VALUES
perfuse_mount() returns a file descriptor to the /dev/fuse socket on success, and causes exit on failure. SEE ALSO

DEVFS(5)						      BSD File Formats Manual							  DEVFS(5)

devfs -- device file system SYNOPSIS
devfs /dev devfs rw 0 0 DESCRIPTION
The device file system, or devfs, provides access to kernel's device namespace in the global file system namespace. The conventional mount point is /dev. The file system includes several directories, links, symbolic links and devices, some of which can also be written. In a chroot'ed environ- ment, devfs can be used to create a new /dev mount point. The mknod(8) tool can be used to recover deleted device entries under devfs. The fdescfs(5) filesystem is an alternate means for populating /dev/fd. The character devices that both devfs and fdescfs(5) present in /dev/fd correspond to the open file descriptors of the process accessing the directory. devfs only creates files for the standard file descriptors 0, 1 and 2. fdescfs(5) creates files for all open descriptors. The options are as follows: -o options Use the specified mount options, as described in mount(8). The following devfs file system-specific options are available: ruleset=ruleset Set ruleset number ruleset as the current ruleset for the mount-point and apply all its rules. If the ruleset number ruleset does not exist, an empty ruleset with the number ruleset is created. See devfs(8) for more information on working with devfs rulesets. FILES
/dev The normal devfs mount point. EXAMPLES
To mount a devfs volume located on /mychroot/dev: mount -t devfs devfs /mychroot/dev SEE ALSO
fdescfs(5), devfs(8), mount(8) HISTORY
The devfs file system first appeared in FreeBSD 2.0. It became the preferred method for accessing devices in FreeBSD 5.0 and the only method in FreeBSD 6.0. The devfs manual page first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2. AUTHORS
The devfs manual page was written by Mike Pritchard <>. BSD
