MOUNT_PTYFS(8)          NetBSD System Manager's Manual          MOUNT_PTYFS(8)

NAME
     mount_ptyfs -- mount the /dev/pts file system

SYNOPSIS
     mount_ptyfs [-g group|gid] [-m mode] [-o options] ptyfs mount_point

DESCRIPTION
     The mount_ptyfs command attaches an instance of the pseudo-terminal
     device filesystem to the global filesystem namespace.  The conventional
     mount point is /dev/pts.  The directory specified by mount_point is con-
     verted to an absolute path before use.  This command is normally executed
     by mount(8) at boot time.

     The filesystem contains pseudo-terminal slave device nodes which are
     allocated dynamically via ptm(4), or they are already open via tradi-
     tional BSD style ptys.

     The options are as follows:

     -g group|gid
             Specify the group ownership of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -m mode
             Specify the default mode of the slave pseudo-tty.

     -o      Options are specified with a -o flag followed by a comma sepa-
             rated string of options.

             mount_ptyfs specific options are group which corresponds to -g,
             and mode which corresponds to -m.  See the mount(8) man page for
             possible options and their meanings.

FILES
     n  The nth pseudo-terminal device in use.
