GMOUNT(2) GMOUNT(2) NAME gmount - mount or remove non-standard file system SYNOPSIS gmount(fstype, dev, flag [, more]) int fstype, flag; dev_t dev; DESCRIPTION Gmount mounts or unmounts a non-standard file system of type fstype. Dev is a device number identifying the object mounted; the minor part should be zero. Device numbers are not shared by different filesystem types. The filesystem is mounted if flag is zero, dismounted if it is 1. Different types of filesystems may require additional argu- ments when mounting. Only fstype, dev, and flag need be given to unmount. The possible calls are: gmount(1, dev, 0, fildes, name); Mount a network filesystem on directory name; fildes is the file descriptor of a stream connected to an appropriate server. gmount(2, dev, 0); Mount the process filesystem. Dev is (stupidly) really a character pointer, and denotes the directory on which to mount. gmount(3, dev, 0, fildes, name); Mount a process on file name; fildes is the file descriptor of a stream. DIAGNOSTICS Gmount returns 0 if the action occurred; -1 otherwise. BUGS Filesystem type 0 (the standard one) should work; it doesn't. The process filesystem should work like everything else.
