mount_pcfs - mount pcfs file systems


mount -F pcfs [ generic_options ] [ -o FSType- specific_options ] special | mount_point mount -F pcfs [ generic_options ] [ -o FSType- specific_options ] special mount_point


mount attaches an MS-DOS file system (pcfs) to the file system hierarchy at the mount_point, which is the pathname of a directory. If mount_point has any contents prior to the mount operation, these are hidden until the file system is unmounted. If mount is invoked with special or mount_point as the only arguments, mount will search /etc/vfstab to fill in the missing arguments, including the FSType- specific_options; see mount(1M) for more details. The special argument can be one of two special device file types: o A floppy disk, such as /dev/diskette0 or /dev/diskette1. o A DOS logical drive on a hard disk expressed as device-name:logical-drive , where device-name speci- fies the special block device-file for the whole disk and logical-drive is either a drive letter (c through z) or a drive number (1 through 24). Examples are /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:c and /dev/dsk/c0t0d0p0:1. The special device file type must have a formatted MS-DOS file system with either a 12-bit, 16-bit, or 32-bit File Allocation Table.


generic_options See mount(1M) for the list of supported options. -o Specify pcfs file system specific options. The fol- lowing options are available: rw|ro Mount the file system read/write or read-only. The default is rw. foldcase|nofoldcase Force uppercase characters in filenames to lowercase when reading them from the filesystem.

If the directory on which a file system is to be mounted is a symbolic link, the file system is mounted on the directory to which the symbolic link refers, rather than on top of the symbolic link itself. SunOS 5.8 Last change: 26 Jan 1998 2
