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

NAME
     mount_filecore -- mount a FILECORE file system

SYNOPSIS
     mount_filecore [-afnR] [-g gid] [-o options] [-u uid] special node

ORIGIN
     The NetBSD FILECORE filesystem is a read only implementation of the filecore file system
     found in Acorn Computers RISC OS operating system.  This operating system is the ROM based
     operating system found on their ARM 6, ARM7 and StrongARM 110 based RiscPC machines that are
     supported by the arm32 port.  Under RISC OS, filecore will have multiple instantiations for
     file systems on different block devices such as floppies, IDE discs, SCSI discs etc. and
     these frequently are considered to be different filesystems e.g. ADFS, IDEFS, SCSIFS etc.

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_filecore command attaches the FILECORE filesystem residing on the device special
     to the global filesystem namespace at the location indicated by node.  Both special and node
     are converted to absolute paths before use.  This command is normally executed by mount(8)
     at boot time, but can be used by any user to mount a FILECORE file system on any directory
     that they own (provided, of course, that they have appropriate access to the device that
     contains the file system).

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Give all files world access.

     -f      Append the filetype to each filename.  This option currently has no effect.

     -g gid  Set the group of the files in the file system to gid.  The default group is the
	     group of the directory on which the file system is being mounted.

     -n      Give all files owner access.

     -o options
	     Use the specified mount options, as described in mount(8).

     -R      Give all files owner read access.

     -u uid  Set the owner of the files in the file system to uid.  The default owner is the
	     owner of the directory on which the file system is being mounted.

SEE ALSO
     mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

HISTORY
     The mount_filecore utility first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.

CAVEATS
     The 'filecore' filesystem currently supports the Acorn filecore file system found on Acorn
     Computers RiscPC desktop machines with versions of RISC OS up to 3.70.
