TAPEFS(1)			     General Commands Manual				TAPEFS(1)

NAME
       32vfs, cpiofs, tapfs, tarfs, tpfs, v6fs, v10fs - mount archival file systems

SYNOPSIS
       fs/32vfs [ -m mountpoint ] [ -p passwd ] [ -g group ] file
       fs/cpiofs
       fs/tapfs
       fs/tarfs
       fs/tpfs
       fs/v6fs
       fs/v10fs

DESCRIPTION
       These commands interpret data from traditional tape or file system formats stored in file,
       and mount their contents (read-only) into a Plan 9 file system.	The optional  -p  and  -g
       flags  specify  Unix-format  password  (respectively  group)  files  that give the mapping
       between the numeric user- and group-ID numbers on the media and the  strings  reported  by
       Plan  9	status	inquiries.   The -m flag introduces the name at which the new file system
       should be attached; the default is /n/tapefs.

       32vfs interprets raw disk images of 32V systems, which are ca. 1978 research Unix  systems
       for the VAX, and also pre-FFS Berkeley VAX systems (1KB block size).

       Cpiofs interprets cpio tape images (constructed with cpio's c flag).

       Tarfs interprets tar tape images.

       Tpfs interprets tp tapes from the Fifth through Seventh Edition research Unix systems.

       Tapfs interprets tap tapes from the pre-Fifth Edition era.

       V6fs  interprets  disk images from the Fifth and Sixth edition research Unix systems (512B
       block size).

       V10fs interprets disk images from the Tenth  Edition  research  Unix  systems  (4KB  block
       size).

SOURCE
       These commands are constructed in a highly stereotyped way using the files fs.c and util.c
       in /sys/src/cmd/tapefs, which in turn derive substantially from ramfs(4).
