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

     mount_ptyfs -- mount the /dev/pts file system

     mount_ptyfs [-g group|gid] [-m mode] [-o options] ptyfs mount_point

     The mount_ptyfs command attaches an instance of the pseudo-terminal device filesystem to the
     global filesystem namespace.  The conventional mount point is /dev/pts.  The directory spec-
     ified by mount_point is converted to an absolute path before use.	This command is normally
     executed by mount(8) at boot time.

     The filesystem contains pseudo-terminal slave device nodes which are allocated dynamically
     via ptm(4), or they are already open via traditional BSD style ptys.

     The options are as follows:

     -g group|gid
	     Specify the group ownership of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -m mode
	     Specify the default mode of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma separated string of

	     mount_ptyfs specific options are group which corresponds to -g, and mode which cor-
	     responds to -m.  See the mount(8) man page for possible options and their meanings.

     n	The nth pseudo-terminal device in use.

     mount(2), unmount(2), ptm(4), fstab(5), mount(8)

     The mount_ptyfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 3.0.

     When multiple instances are mounted, they all display the union of the ptys used in each
     instance, not just the ones used in the particular instance.
