SPACE(4) File Formats and Configurations SPACE(4)


NAME


space - disk space requirement file

DESCRIPTION


space is an ASCII file that gives information about disk space
requirements for the target environment. The space file defines space
needed beyond what is used by objects defined in the prototype(4) file;
for example, files which will be installed with the installf(1M) command.
The space file should define the maximum amount of additional space that
a package will require.


The generic format of a line in this file is:


pathname blocks inodes


Definitions for the fields are as follows:

pathname
Specify a directory name which may or may not be the mount
point for a filesystem. Names that do not begin with a slash
('/') indicate relocatable directories.


blocks
Define the number of disk blocks required for installation of
the files and directory entries contained in the pathname
(using a 512-byte block size).


inodes
Define the number of inodes required for installation of the
files and directory entries contained in the pathname.


EXAMPLES


Example 1: A sample file.



# extra space required by config data which is
# dynamically loaded onto the system
data 500 1
