MOUNT_FILECORE(8)           System Manager's Manual          MOUNT_FILECORE(8)

     mount_filecore - mount a FILECORE file system

     mount_filecore [-afnR] [-g gid] [-o options] [-u uid] special node

     The NetBSD FILECORE filesystem is a read only implementation of the
     filecore file system found in Acorn Computers RISC OS operating system.
     This operating system is the ROM based operating system found on their
     ARM 6, ARM7 and StrongARM 110 based RiscPC machines that are supported by
     the arm32 port.  Under RISC OS, filecore will have multiple
     instantiations for file systems on different block devices such as
     floppies, IDE discs, SCSI discs etc. and these frequently are considered
     to be different filesystems e.g. ADFS, IDEFS, SCSIFS etc.

     The mount_filecore command attaches the FILECORE filesystem residing on
     the device special to the global filesystem namespace at the location
     indicated by node.  Both special and node are converted to absolute paths
     before use.  This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time,
     but can be used by any user to mount a FILECORE file system on any
     directory that they own (provided, of course, that they have appropriate
     access to the device that contains the file system).

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Give all files world access.

     -f      Append the filetype to each filename.  This option currently has
             no effect.

     -g gid  Set the group of the files in the file system to gid.  The
             default group is the group of the directory on which the file
             system is being mounted.

     -n      Give all files owner access.

     -o options
             Use the specified mount options, as described in mount(8).

     -R      Give all files owner read access.

     -u uid  Set the owner of the files in the file system to uid.  The
             default owner is the owner of the directory on which the file
             system is being mounted.

     mount(2), unmount(2), fstab(5), mount(8)

     The mount_filecore utility first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.

     The `filecore' filesystem currently supports the Acorn filecore file
     system found on Acorn Computers RiscPC desktop machines with versions of
     RISC OS up to 3.70.
