PSEUDOFS(9)		 BSD Kernel Developer's Manual		   PSEUDOFS(9)

NAME
     pseudofs — pseudo file system construction kit

SYNOPSIS
     #include <fs/pseudofs/pseudofs.h>

DESCRIPTION
     The pseudofs module offers an abstract API for pseudo-file systems such
     as procfs(5) and linprocfs(5).  It takes care of all the hairy bits like
     interfacing with the VFS system, enforcing access control, keeping track
     of file numbers, and cloning files and directories that are process-spe‐
     cific.  The consumer module, i.e., the module that implements the actual
     guts of the file system, needs only provide the directory structure (rep‐
     resented by a collection of structures declared and initialized by macros
     provided by pseudofs) and callbacks that report file attributes or write
     the actual file contents into sbufs.

SEE ALSO
     linprocfs(5), linsysfs(5), procfs(5), sbuf(9), vnode(9)

HISTORY
     The pseudofs module appeared in FreeBSD 5.0.

AUTHORS
     The pseudofs module and this manual page were written by Dag-Erling
