PAQFS(4)PAQFS(4)NAMEpaqfs - compressed read-only file system
SYNOPSISpaqfs [ -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:
The number of file system blocks to cache in memory. The default
is 20 blocks.
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
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.
