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

NAME
     mount_hfs -- mount an Apple HFS+ File System

SYNOPSIS
     mount_hfs [-o options] special node

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_hfs command attaches the Apple HFS+ File System on the special device on to the
     file system tree at point node.  Both special and node are converted to absolute paths
     before use.

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.  The options are as follows:

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of
	     options.  See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.

NOTES
     Apple disk images (.dmg files) and hybrid CD-ROMs contain multiple partitions with an HFS+
     file system on one of them.  Use apmlabel(8) to enter it into the disklabel and mount the
     resulting partition.

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

HISTORY
     The mount_hfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     mount_hfs was developed by Yevgeny Binder <yevbee@comcast.net> during the 2005 Google Summer
     of Code.  It was improved and imported into NetBSD by Dieter Baron <dillo@NetBSD.org>.

BUGS
     HFS+ support is still experimental.  Currently, no write support is present.  Also, Unicode
     decomposition is not performed on file names prior to lookup.
