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

     mount_hfs - mount an Apple HFS+ File System

     mount_hfs [-o options] special node

     The mount_hfs command attaches the Apple HFS+ File System on the special
     device on to the file system tree at point node.  Both special and node
     are converted to absolute paths before use.

     This command is normally executed by mount(8) at boot time.  The options
     are as follows:

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma
             separated string of options.  See the mount(8) man page for
             possible options and their meanings.

     Apple disk images (.dmg files) and hybrid CD-ROMs contain multiple
     partitions with an HFS+ file system on one of them.  Use apmlabel(8) to
     enter it into the disklabel and mount the resulting partition.

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

     The mount_hfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 5.0.

     mount_hfs was developed by Yevgeny Binder <yevbee@comcast.net> during the
     2005 Google Summer of Code.  It was improved and imported into NetBSD by
     Dieter Baron <dillo@NetBSD.org>.

     HFS+ support is still experimental.  Currently, no write support is
     present.  Also, Unicode decomposition is not performed on file names
     prior to lookup.
