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

     mount_ptyfs - mount the /dev/pts file system

     mount_ptyfs [-g group|gid] [-m mode] [-o options] ptyfs mount_point

     The mount_ptyfs command attaches an instance of the pseudo-terminal
     device filesystem to the global filesystem namespace.  The conventional
     mount point is /dev/pts.  The directory specified by mount_point is
     converted to an absolute path before use.  This command is normally
     executed by mount(8) at boot time.

     The filesystem contains pseudo-terminal slave device nodes which are
     allocated dynamically via ptm(4).

     The options are as follows:

     -g group|gid
             Specify the group ownership of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -m mode
             Specify the default mode of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma
             separated string of options.

             mount_ptyfs specific options are group which corresponds to -g,
             and mode which corresponds to -m.  See the mount(8) man page for
             possible options and their meanings.

     n  The nth pseudo-terminal device in use.

     mount(2), unmount(2), ptm(4), fstab(5), mount(8)

     The mount_ptyfs utility first appeared in NetBSD 3.0.
