       cpu - connection to cpu server

       cpu [ -h server ] [ -c cmd args ...  ]

       Cpu  starts an rc(1) running on the server machine, or the machine named in the $cpu envi-
       ronment variable if there is no -h option.  Rc's standard input, output, and  error  files
       will  be  /dev/cons in the name space where the cpu command was invoked.  Normally, cpu is
       run in an 81/2(1) window on a terminal, so rc output goes to that window, and input  comes
       from  the  keyboard  when  that	window is current.  Rc's current directory is the working
       directory of the cpu command itself.

       The name space for the new rc is an analogue of the name space where the cpu  command  was
       invoked:  it  is  the same except for architecture-dependent bindings such as /bin and the
       use of fast paths to file servers, if available.

       If a -c argument is present, the remainder of the command line is executed by  rc  on  the
       server, and then cpu exits.

       The  name  space  is built by running /usr/$user/lib/profile with the root of the invoking
       name space bound to /mnt/term.  The service  environment  variable  is  set  to	cpu;  the
       cputype and objtype environment variables reflect the server's architecture.

       The  name  space  of  the  terminal  side of the cpu command is mounted on the CPU side on
       directory /mnt/term.


       rc(1), 81/2(1)

       Binds and mounts done after the terminal lib/profile is run are not reflected in  the  new
       name space.
