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). 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.
