NAME
       rmmount, rmumount - mounts and unmounts removable media

SYNOPSIS
       rmmount	[-u] [-o options] [nickname | device] [mount_point]

       rmmount	[-d] [-l]

       rmumount  [nickname | mount_point | device]

       rmumount  [-d] [-l]

DESCRIPTION
       The  rmmount  and rmumount utilities mount and unmount removable or hot-pluggable volumes.
       The optional argument can identify the volume by its volume label, mount  point	or  block
       device path.

       rmmount	can  also  take additional mount options if the user has sufficient privileges to
       override the default mount options.

       Unmounting removable media does not result in its ejection.  Use  eject(1)  to  optionally
       unmount and eject the media.

OPTIONS
       The following options are supported for rmmount and rmumount:

       -d    Display  the  device path of the default device. This device is used if no arguments
	     are supplied.

       -l    Display the paths and nicknames of mountable devices.

       The following options are supported for rmmount only:

       -o options    Display mount options. This option can only be used by users that have priv-
		     ileges to override the system default options.

       -u	     Unmounts the volume as opposed to mounting it.

OPERANDS
       The following operands are supported:

       device	      Specifies  which	device to mount or unmount, by the name it appears in the
		      directory /dev.

       mount_point    Specifies which device to mount or unmount, by the name it appears  in  the
		      directory /dev.

       nickname       Specifies  which	device	to  mount or unmount, by its nickname as known to
		      this command.
