NAMESPACE(6)                     Games Manual                     NAMESPACE(6)



NAME
       namespace - name space description file

DESCRIPTION
       Namespace files describe how to construct a name space from scratch, an
       operation normally performed by  the  newns  subroutine  (see  auth(2))
       which  is  typically  called  by init(8).  Each line specifies one name
       space operation.  Spaces and tabs separate arguments to operations;  no
       quotes  or escapes are recognized.  Blank lines and lines with # as the
       first non-space character are ignored.  Environment  variables  of  the
       form  $name  are  expanded within arguments, where name is a UTF string
       terminated by white space, a /, or a $.

       The known operations and their arguments are:

       mount [-abc] servename old [spec]
              Mount servename on old.

       bind [-abc]  new old
              Bind new on old.

       import [-abc] host "[remotepath]mountpoint
              Import remotepath from machine server and attach  it  to  mount-
              point.

       cd dir Change the working directory to dir.

       The  options  for bind, mount, and import are interpreted as in bind(1)
       and import(4).
