ATOHEXLABEL(1M) Maintenance Commands ATOHEXLABEL(1M)


NAME


atohexlabel - convert a human readable label to its internal text
equivalent

SYNOPSIS


/usr/sbin/atohexlabel [human-readable-sensitivity-label]


/usr/sbin/atohexlabel -c [human-readable-clearance]


DESCRIPTION


atohexlabel converts a human readable label into an internal text
representation that is safe for storing in a public object. If no option
is supplied, the label is assumed to be a sensitivity label.


Internal conversions can later be parsed to their same value. This
internal form is often hexadecimal. The converted label is written to the
standard output file. If no human readable label is specified, the label
is read from the standard input file. The expected use of this command is
emergency repair of labels that are stored in internal databases.

OPTIONS

0
On success.


1
