PUFFS(4)                NetBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual               PUFFS(4)


NAME
puffs -- Pass-to-Userspace Framework File System
SYNOPSIS
file-system PUFFS pseudo-device putter
DESCRIPTION
puffs provides a framework for creating file systems as userspace servers. The in-kernel VFS attachment is controlled through a special device node, /dev/puffs. People looking to implement file systems should use the system through the convenience library described in puffs(3). Termination A puffs file system can be unmounted regularly using umount(8). The file system will automatically be unmounted in case the userspace server is killed or the control file descriptor closed.
