       paqfs  - compressed read-only file system

       paqfs  [ -disv ] [ -c cachesize ] [ -m mtpt ] [ -M mesgsize ] [ -S srv‐
       name ] paqfile

       Paqfs interprets	 the  compressed  read-only  file  system  created  by
       mkpaqfs(8)  and stored in paqfile so that it can be mounted into a Plan
       9 file system.  Paqfs is typically used to create a  stand  alone  file
       system  for a small persistent storage device, such as a flash ROM.  It
       does not authenticate its clients and assumes each group has  a	single
       member with the same name.

       Options to paqfs are:

       -c cachesize
	      The number of file system blocks to cache in memory. The default
	      is 20 blocks.

       -M mesgsize
	      The maximum 9P message size. The default is  sufficient  for  8K
	      byte read message.

       -d     Output various debugging information to stderr.

       -i     Use  file	 descriptors  0	 and 1 as the 9P communication channel
	      rather than create a pipe.

       -q     Suppress the output of the archive creation date and fingerprint
	      to stderr.

       -m mtpt
	      The location to mount the file system. The default is /n/paq.

       -s     Post the 9P channel on #s/srvname, default #s/paqfs, rather than
	      mounting it on mtpt.

       -S     The name to post in #s.  The default is paqfs.

       -p     Both post the 9P channel in #s and mount the paqfile in  to  the

       -v     Verify  the  integrity of the paqfile.  Before mounting the file
	      system, the entire file is parsed and the sha1 checksum  of  the
	      file  system  data  is  compared to the checksum embedded in the
	      file.  This option enables the use of paqfs with files that con‐
	      sist of a paq file system concatenated with additional data.
