NAMESPACE(6)                                         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 sub-
          routine (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 [-abcC] servename old [spec]
             Mount servename on old.
          bind [-abcC]  new old
             Bind new on old.
          import [-abc] host [remotepath] mountpoint
             Import remotepath from machine server and attach it to
             mountpoint.
          cd dir
             Change the working directory to dir.
          unmount [new] old
             Unmount new from old, or everything mounted on old if new
             is missing.

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