TAPEFS(4)							     TAPEFS(4)

       32vfs,  cpiofs, tapfs, tarfs, tpfs, v6fs, v10fs, zipfs - mount archival
       file systems

       fs/32vfs [ -b blocksize ] [ -m mountpoint ] [ -p passwd ] [ -g group  ]

       These commands interpret data from traditional tape or file system for‐
       mats stored in file, and mount their contents (read-only) into a Plan 9
       file system.  The optional -p and -g flags specify Unix-format password
       (respectively group) files that give the mapping	 between  the  numeric
       user-  and  group-ID  numbers  on the media and the strings reported by
       Plan 9 status inquiries.	 The -m flag introduces the name at which  the
       new file system should be attached; the default is /n/tapefs.

       32vfs  interprets  raw  disk  images of 32V systems, which are ca. 1978
       research Unix systems for the VAX (512 byte block size,	the  default),
       and also pre-FFS Berkeley VAX systems (1KB block size).

       Cpiofs interprets cpio tape images (constructed with cpio's c flag).

       Tarfs interprets tar tape images.

       Tpfs  interprets	 tp  tapes  from  the  Fifth  through  Seventh Edition
       research Unix systems.

       Tapfs interprets tap tapes from the pre-Fifth Edition era.

       V6fs interprets disk images from the Fifth and Sixth  edition  research
       Unix systems (512B block size).

       V10fs  interprets disk images from the Tenth Edition research Unix sys‐
       tems (4KB block size).

       Zipfs interprets zip archives (see gzip(1)).

       These commands are constructed in a highly stereotyped  way  using  the
       files fs.c and util.c in /sys/src/cmd/tapefs, which in turn derive sub‐
       stantially from ramfs(4).

       intro(5), ramfs(4).
