NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     pseudofs -- pseudo file system construction kit

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <fs/pseudofs/pseudofs.h>

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pseudofs module offers an abstract API for pseudo-file systems such
     as procfs(5) and linprocfs(5).  It takes care of all the hairy bits like
     interfacing with the VFS system, enforcing access control, keeping track
     of file numbers, and cloning files and directories that are process-specific.
  The consumer module, i.e. the module that implements the actual
     guts of the file system, needs only provide the directory structure (represented
 by a collection of structures declared and initialized by macros
     provided by pseudofs) and callbacks that report file attributes or write
     the actual file contents into sbufs.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     linprocfs(5), procfs(5), sbuf(9), vnode(9)

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The pseudofs module appeared in FreeBSD 5.0.
