plpfuse - Daemon to mount an EPOC device as a file system
plpfuse [-V] [-d] [-h] [-p [HOST:]PORT] [LONG-OPTIONS] MOUNTPOINT
plpfuse is a file system which provides file system access to your EPOC
device. It mounts the EPOC device’s file systems in your computer’s
file system. Like the other front-ends, this program auto-reconnects
after a link failure, so you can keep the EPOC device mounted all the
time, even when it is not connected. Due to Rudolf Koenig’s clever
error handling, you don’t need to worry about blocked I/O processes if
the psion isn’t available. You will simply get a "device not
configured" error, when accessing a file on a previously connected
psion which has been disconnected. After that, the mount point will
appear with the drives missing. As soon as the psion is connected
again, the subdirectories will reappear (possibly with a few seconds’
EPOC file attributes are mapped as follows: readable on the EPOC device
is mapped to user-readable on UNIX; read-only is inverted and mapped to
user-writable; system, hidden and archived are mapped to the extended
user attribute user.psion as the single characters ‘s’, ‘h’ and ‘a’.
The extended attribute can therefore be up to three characters long. An
attempt to read or write any other extended attribute will give an

Display a short help text and exit.
Produce debugging logs. Can be specified more than once to
increase the debug level (up to 3 times).
Specify the host and port to connect to (e.g. the port where
ncpd is listening on) - by default the host is 127.0.0.1 and the
port is looked up in /etc/services. If it is not found there, a
fall-back builtin of 7501.
Because UNIX file names are simply byte strings, if your EPOC device
uses a different character set from the computer to which it is
connected, which is highly likely, then characters which are
differently encoded between the two characters sets will not translate
between the two systems. it is usually safe to use 7-bit ASCII
characters, avoiding colon (invalid on EPOC) and slash (invalid on
UNIX). This problem may be fixed in future.
