       kfs - disk file system

       disk/kfs [ -rc ] [ -b n ] [ -f file ] [ -n name ] [ -s ]

       Kfs  is	a local user-level file server for a Plan 9 terminal with a disk.  It maintains a
       hierarchical Plan 9 file system on the disk and offers 9P (see  intro(5))  access  to  it.
       Kfs  begins  by	checking  the  file system for consistency, rebuilding the free list, and
       placing a file descriptor in /srv/name, where name is the service name (default kfs).   If
       the  file  system  is  inconsistent,  the user is asked for permission to ream (q.v.)  the
       disk.  The file system is not checked if it is reamed.

       The options are

       b n    If the file system is reamed, use n byte blocks.	Larger blocks make the file  sys-
	      tem  faster and less space efficient.  1024 and 4096 are good choices.  N must be a
	      multiple of 512.

       c      Do not check the file system.

       f file Use file as the disk.  The default is /dev/sd0fs.

       n name Use kfs.name as the name of the service.

       r      Ream the file system, erasing all of the old data and adding all blocks to the free

       s      Post  file  descriptor zero in /srv/service and read and write protocol messages on
	      file descriptor one.

       Create a file system with service name kfs.local and mount it on /n/kfs.

	      % kfs -rb4096 -nlocal
	      % mount -c /srv/kfs.local /n/kfs

	      Default file holding blocks.
