hmount - introduce a new HFS volume and make it current


hmount source-path [partition-no]


hmount is used to introduce a new HFS volume. A UNIX pathname to the volume's source must
be specified. The source may be a block device or a regular file containing an HFS volume

If the source medium is partitioned, one partition must be selected to be mounted. If
there is only one HFS partition on the medium, it will be selected by default. Otherwise,
the desired partition number must be specified (as the ordinal nth HFS partition) on the
command-line. Partition number 0 can be specified to refer to the entire medium, ignoring
what might otherwise be perceived as a partition map, although in practice this is
probably only useful if you want this command to fail when the medium is partitioned.

The mounted volume becomes "current" so subsequent commands will refer to it. The current
working directory for the volume is set to the root of the volume. This information is
kept in a file named .hcwd in the user's home directory.

If the source medium is changed (e.g. floppy or CD-ROM disc exchanged) after hmount has
been called, subsequent HFS commands will fail until the original medium is replaced or a
different volume is made current. To use the same source path with the different medium,
reissue the hmount command.


% hmount /dev/fd0
If a Macintosh floppy disk is available as /dev/fd0, this command makes the floppy
current for other HFS commands such as hls(1), hcd(1), hcopy(1), etc.

% hmount /dev/sd2 1
If a SCSI disk is available as /dev/sd2, this command finds the first HFS partition
on the medium and makes it available for other HFS operations.


hmount does not actually mount an HFS partition over a UNIX directory in the traditional
mount(8) sense. It is merely a "virtual" mount, as a point of convenience for future HFS
operations. Each HFS command independently opens, operates on, and closes the named source
path given to hmount.
