     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.
