NAME
     puffs -- Pass-to-Userspace Framework File System

SYNOPSIS
     file-system PUFFS
     pseudo-device putter

DESCRIPTION
     puffs provides a framework for creating file systems as userspace servers.  The in-kernel
     VFS attachment is controlled through a special device node, /dev/puffs.  People looking to
     implement file systems should use the system through the convenience library described in
     puffs(3).

   Termination
     A puffs file system can be unmounted regularly using umount(8).  The file system will auto-
     matically be unmounted in case the userspace server is killed or the control file descriptor
     closed.

SEE ALSO
     puffs(3)

HISTORY
     An unsupported experimental version of puffs first appeared in NetBSD 4.0.  A stable version
     appeared in NetBSD 5.0.
