PSEUDOFS(9)	       FreeBSD 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
     Smorgrav.
