INTRO(4)                   Kernel Interfaces Manual                   INTRO(4)



NAME
       intro - introduction to file servers

DESCRIPTION
       A  Plan  9 file server provides a file tree to processes.  This section
       of the manual describes servers than can be mounted in a name space  to
       give  a file-like interface to interesting services.  A file server may
       be a provider of a conventional file system, with files  maintained  on
       permanent  storage,  or it may also be a process that synthesizes files
       in some manner.
