.Xr flash 9
.Sh HISTORY
A
.Nm
utility appeared in
.Nx 6.0 .
CHFS was originally called ChewieFS during development.
The name was changed to avoid legal issues and to have a more
neutral name.
.Sh AUTHORS
CHFS was developed at the
.An Department of Software Engineering, University of Szeged, Hungary.
.Sh BUGS
CHFS has a few known bugs as of 2011.
Writing the FS full can cause problems.
Truncating a file and growing it again can cause the new bytes
not having all zeroes, but filled with the old content instead.
