RAMFS(4)                                                 RAMFS(4)

     NAME
          ramfs  - memory file system

     SYNOPSIS
          ramfs [ -i ] [ -S service ]

     DESCRIPTION
          Ramfs starts a 9P file server keeping all files in memory.
          Initially the file tree is empty.

          By default ramfs posts its service as ramfs using
          9pserve(4).

          The -S flag specifies an alternate service name for ramfs to
          use.

          The -i flag tells ramfs to use file descriptors 0 and 1 for
          its communication channel rather than create a pipe.  This
          makes it possible to use ramfs as a file server on a remote
          machine: the file descriptors 0 and 1 will be the network
          channel from ramfs to the client machine.

          This program is useful mainly as an example of how to write
          a user-level file server.  It can also be used to provide
          high-performance temporary files.
