Plan 9 - man page for dup (plan9 section 3)

DUP(3)				     Library Functions Manual				   DUP(3)

NAME
       dup - dups of open files

SYNOPSIS
       bind #d /fd

       /fd/0
       /fd/1
       ...

DESCRIPTION
       The  dup device serves a one-level directory containing files whose names are decimal num-
       bers.  A file of name n corresponds to open file descriptor n in the current process.

       An open(2) of file n results in a file descriptor identical to what would be returned from
       a system call dup(n, -1).  Note that the result is no longer a file in the dup device.

       The  stat operation returns information about the device file, not the open file it points
       to.  A stat of #d/n will contain n for the name, 0 for the length, and 0400, 0200, or 0600
       for the mode, depending on whether the dup target is open for reading, writing, or both.
