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.
