ncheck - generate a list of path names versus i-numbers


ncheck [-F FSType] [-V] [generic_options]
[-o FSType-specific_options] [special]...


ncheck with no options generates a path-name versus i-number list of all
files on special. If special is not specified on the command line the
list is generated for all specials in /etc/vfstab which have a numeric
fsckpass. special is the raw device on which the file system exists.


Specify the FSType on which to operate. The FSType
should either be specified here or be determinable
from /etc/vfstab by finding an entry in the table that
has a numeric fsckpass field and an fsckdev that
matches special.

Echo the complete command line, but do not execute the
command. The command line is generated by using the
options and arguments provided by the user and adding
to them information derived from /etc/vfstab. This
option may be used to verify and validate the command

Options that are commonly supported by most FSType-
specific command modules. The following options are

-i i-list
Limit the report to the files on the i-
list that follows. The i-list must be
separated by commas with no intervening

Print the names "." and ".." which are
ordinarily suppressed.

Report only special files and files with
set-user-ID mode. This option may be used
to detect violations of security policy.

Specify FSType-specific_options in a comma separated
(without spaces) list of suboptions and keyword-
attribute pairs for interpretation by the FSType-
specific module of the command.


See largefile(7) for the description of the behavior of ncheck when
encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2^31 bytes).
