9P

The latest version of the Inferno operating system also uses 9P2000. The Inferno file protocol was originally called Styx, but technically it has always been a variant of 9P. A server implementation of 9P for Unix, called u9fs, is included in the Plan 9 distribution. A kernel client driver for Linux is part of the v9fs project. 9P and its derivatives have also found application in embedded environments, such as the Styx on a Brick project. Server applications[edit] Many of Plan 9's applications take the form of 9P servers. Implementation[edit] 9P sends the following messages between clients and servers.[1] These messages correspond to the entry points in the Plan 9 vfs layer that any 9P server must implement. version Negotiate protocol version error Return an error flush Abort a message auth, attach Messages to establish a connection walk Descend a directory hierarchy.

Plan 9 from Bell Labs. Plan 9 from Bell Labs is a distributed operating system, originally developed by the Computing Sciences Research Center at Bell Labs between the mid-1980s and 2002.

It takes some of the principles of Unix, developed in the same research group, but extends these to a networked environment with graphical terminals. The name Plan 9 from Bell Labs is a reference to the Ed Wood 1959 cult science fiction Z-movie Plan 9 from Outer Space.[5] Also, Glenda, the Plan 9 Bunny, is presumably a reference to Wood's film Glen or Glenda. The system continues to be used and developed by operating system researchers and hobbyists.[6][7] History[edit] Plan 9 replaced Unix as Bell Labs's primary platform for operating systems research. A user and development community, including current and former Bell Labs personnel, produced minor daily releases in form of ISO images.
