     INTRO(4)                                                 INTRO(4)

          intro - introduction to file servers

          This section describes programs that serve Styx (see
          intro(5)), and can therefore be mounted, generating a new
          part of the name space.  Some, such as dossrv, thereby make
          the contents of a foreign file format visible directly to
          Inferno applications; others, such as acme, provide their
          own services through operations on files in a name space.
