hsfsis a file system type that allows users to access files on High Sierra or ISO 9660 format CD-ROM disks from within the SunOS operating system. Once mounted, a
hsfsfile system provides standard read-only file system operations and semantics, meaning that you can read and list files in a directory on a High Sierra or ISO 9660 CD-ROM and applications can use standard UNIX system calls on these files and directories.
This file system contains support for Rock Ridge, ISO 9660 Version 2 and Joliet extensions. These extensions provide support for file names with a length of at least 207 bytes, but only Rock Ridge extensions (with the exception of writability and hard links) can provide file system semantics and file types as they are found in UFS. The presence of Rock Ridge, ISO 9660 Version 2, and Joliet is autodetected and the best-suitable available extension is used by the HSFS driver for file name and attribute lookup.
If your /etc/vfstab file contains a line similar to the following:
/dev/dsk/c0t6d0s0 - /hsfs hsfs - no ro
and /hsfs exists, you can mount an
hsfs file system with either of the following
mount -F hsfs -o ro device-special directory-name
By default, Rock Ridge extensions are used if available, otherwise ISO 9660 Version 2, then Joliet are used. If neither extension is present HSFS defaults to the standard capabilities of ISO 9660. Since so-called hybrid CD-ROMs that contain multiple extensions are possible, you can use the following mount options to deliberately disable the search for a specific extension or to force the use of a specific extension even if a preferable type is present:
mount -F hsfs -o ro,nrr device-special directory-name
Mount options are:
Files on a High Sierra or ISO 9660 CD-ROM disk have names of the
form filename.ext;versio, where
filename and the optional ext
consist of a sequence of uppercase alphanumeric characters (including
‘_’), while the version consists of a
sequence of digits, representing the version number of the file.
hsfs converts all the uppercase characters in a file
name to lowercase, and truncates the ‘’; and version
information. If more than one version of a file is present on the CD-ROM,
only the file with the highest version number is accessible.
If the CD-ROM contains Rock Ridge, ISO 9660 version 2 or Joliet extensions, the file names and directory names may contain any character supported under UFS(7FS). The names may also be upper and/or lower case and are case sensitive. File name lengths can be as long as those of UFS(7FS).
Files accessed through
hsfs have mode 555
(owner, group and world readable and executable), uid 0 and gid 3. If a
directory on the CD-ROM has read permission,
grants execute permission to the directory, allowing it to be searched.
With Rock Ridge extensions, files and directories can have any
permissions that are supported on a
UFS(7FS) file system. However, under
all write permissions, the file system is read-only, with
EROFS returned to any write operations.
Like High Sierra and ISO 9660 CD-ROMs, HSFS supports only regular files and directories. A Rock Ridge CD-ROM can support regular files, directories, and symbolic links, as well as device nodes, such as block, character, and FIFO.
If there is a file BIG.BAR on a High
Sierra or ISO 9660 format CD-ROM it will show up as
big.bar when listed on a
hsfs file system.
If there are three files Pa BAR.BAZ;1 , Pa BBAR.BAZ;2 , and BAR.BAZ;3 on a High Sierra or ISO 9660 format CD-ROM, only the file BAR.BAZ;3 will be accessible. It will be listed as bar.baz.
hsfsfile system does not support the format of some file or directory on the CD-ROM, for example a record structured file.
hsfsinternal data structure elements to handle all the files currently open. This problem may be overcome by adding a line of the form ‘
set hsfs:nhsnode=number’ to the /etc/system system configuration file and rebooting. See system(4).

Under MS-DOS (for which CD-ROMs are frequently targeted), files with no extension may be represented either as: filename. or filename that is, with or without a trailing period. These names are not equivalent under UNIX systems. For example, the names: BAR. and BAR are not names for the same file under the UNIX system. This may cause confusion if you are consulting documentation for CD-ROMs originally intended for MS-DOS systems.
