NAME
     hier -- layout of filesystems

DESCRIPTION
     An outline of the filesystem hierarchy.

     Naming is very important.  The UNIX System relies on filename conventions
     for much of its power as a system.  The following file system layout
     describes generally where things are and what they are, with references
     to other man pages for more detailed documentation.

     Not all files will be in every system.
