    +Macintosh HFSPlus Filesystem for Linux
    +======================================
    +
    +HFSPlus is a filesystem first introduced in MacOS 8.1.
    +HFSPlus has several extensions to HFS, including 32 bit allocation
    +blocks, 255 character unicode filenames, and file sizes of 2^63 bytes.
    +
    +
    +Mount options
    +=============
    +
    +When mounting an HFSPlus filesystem, the following options are accepted:
    +
    + creator=cccc, type=cccc
    + Specifies the creator/type values as shown by the MacOS finder
    + used for creating new files. Default values: '????'.
    +
    + uid=n, gid=n
    + Specifies the user/group that owns all files on the filesystem
    + that have uninitialized permissions structures.
    + Default: user/group id of the mounting process.
    +
    + umask=n
    + Specifies the umask used for files and directories that have
    + uninitialized permissions structures.
    + Default: umask of the mounting process.
    +
    + session=n
    + Select the CDROM session to mount as HFSPlus filesystem. Defaults to
    + leaving that decision to the CDROM driver. This option will fail
    + with anything but a CDROM as underlying devices.
    +
    + part=n
    + Select partition number n from the devices. Does only makes
    + sense for CDROMS because they can't be partitioned under Linux.
    + For disk devices the generic partition parsing code does this
    + for us. Defaults to not parsing the partition table at all.
    +
    + decompose
    + Decompose file name characters.
    +
    + nodecompose
    + Do not decompose file name characters.
    +
    + force
    + Used to force write access to volumes that are marked as journalled
    + or locked. Use at your own risk.
    +
    + nls=cccc
    + Encoding to use when presenting file names.
    +
