       namespace - name space description file

       Namespace files describe how to construct a name space from scratch, an
       operation normally performed by the newns  or  addns  subroutines  (see
       auth(2)) which is typically called by init(8).  Each line specifies one
       name space operation.  Spaces and tabs  separate	 arguments  to	opera‐
       tions; no quotes or escapes are recognized.  Blank lines and lines with
       # as the first non-space character are ignored.	Environment  variables
       of  the	form  $name are expanded within arguments, where name is a UTF
       string terminated by white space, a /, or a $.

       The known operations and their arguments are:

       mount [-abcC] servename old [spec]
	      Mount servename on old.

       bind [-abcC]  new old
	      Bind new on old.

       import [-abc] host "[remotepath]mountpoint
	      Import remotepath from machine server and attach	it  to	mount‐

       cd dir Change the working directory to dir.

       unmount [new] old
	      Unmount  new  from  old,	or everything mounted on old if new is

       clear  Clear the name space with rfork(RFCNAMEG).

       . path Execute the namespace file path.	Note that path must be present
	      in the name space being built.

       The  options  for bind, mount, and import are interpreted as in bind(1)
       and import(4).

       bind(1), namespace(4), init(8)
