FSTYP_MOD_INIT(3FSTYP) File System Type Identification Library Functions


NAME


fstyp_mod_init, fstyp_mod_fini, fstyp_mod_ident, fstyp_mod_get_attr,
fstyp_mod_dump - libfstyp module interface

SYNOPSIS


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

int fstyp_mod_init(int fd, off64_t **offset, fstyp_mod_handle_t *handle);


void fstyp_mod_fini(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle);


int fstyp_mod_ident(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle);


int fstyp_mod_get_attr(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle, nvlist_t **attr);


int fstyp_mod_dump(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle, FILE *fout, FILE *ferr);


PARAMETERS


fd
Open file descriptor of a block or a raw device that contains
the file system to be identified.


offset
Offset from the beginning of the device where the file system
is located.


handle
Opaque handle that the module returns in fstyp_mod_init() and
is used with other module functions.


fout
Output stream.


ferr
Error stream.


DESCRIPTION


A libfstyp module implements heuristics required to identify a file
system type. The modules are shared objects loaded by libfstyp. The
libfstyp modules are located in /usr/lib/fs subdirectories. A
subdirectory name defines the name of the file system.


Each module exports the fstyp_mod_init(), fstyp_mod_fini(),
fstyp_mod_ident(), and fstyp_mod_get_attr() functions. All of these
functions map directly to the respective libfstyp interfaces.


The fstyp_mod_dump() function is optional. It can be used to output
unformatted information about the file system. This function is used by
the fstyp(1M) command when the -v option is specified. The
fstyp_mod_dump() function is not recommended and should be used only in
legacy modules.

FILES


/usr/lib/fs/

Default module directory.


/usr/lib/fs/fstype/fstyp.so.1

Default path to a libfstyp module for an fstype file system.
