FSTYP_IDENT(3FSTYP) File System Type Identification Library Functions


NAME


fstyp_ident - identify file system attributes

SYNOPSIS


cc [ flag... ] file... -lfstyp -lnvpair [ library... ]
#include <libnvpair.h>
#include <libfstyp.h>

int fstyp_ident(fstyp_handle_t handle, const char *fstyp,
const char **ident);


PARAMETERS


handle
Opaque handle returned by fstyp_init(3FSTYP).


fstype
Opaque argument that specifies the file system type to be
identified.


ident
File system type returned if identification succeeds.


DESCRIPTION


The fstyp_ident() function attempts to identify a file system associated
with the handle. If the function succeeds, the file system name is
returned in the ident pointer.


If fstype is NULL, the fstyp_ident() function tries all available
identification modules. If fstype is other than NULL, fstyp_ident() tries
only the module for the file system type which is specified.

RETURN VALUES


The fstyp_ident() function returns 0 on success and an error value on
failure. See fstyp_strerror(3FSTYP).
