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


NAME
mount_ptyfs -- mount the /dev/pts file system
SYNOPSIS
mount_ptyfs [-g group|gid] [-m mode] [-o options] ptyfs mount_point
DESCRIPTION
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 con- verted 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), or they are already open via tradi- tional BSD style ptys. 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 sepa- rated 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.
FILES
n The nth pseudo-terminal device in use.

HISTORY

BUGS
When multiple instances are mounted, they all display the union of the ptys used in each instance, not just the ones used in the particular instance. NetBSD 6.0 September 19, 2012 NetBSD 6.0
