 NAME
      ff - list file names and statistics for a file system

 SYNOPSIS
      /usr/sbin/ff [-F FStype] [-o specific_options] [-V] special ...

 DESCRIPTION
      The ff command reads the i-list and directories of each special file,
      assuming it to be a file system, saving i-node data for files that
      match the selection criteria.  Output consists of the path name for
      each saved i-node, plus any other file information requested with the
      -o option.  Output fields are positional.	 The output is produced in
      i-node order; fields are separated by tabs.  The default line produced
      by ff includes the path name and i-number fields.

    Options and Arguments
      ff recognizes the following options and arguments:

	   -F FStype	  Specify the file system type on which to operate
			  (see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)).  If this option
			  is not included on the command line, then the file
			  system type is determined from the file /etc/fstab
			  by matching each special with an entry in that
			  file.	 If there is no entry in /etc/fstab, then
			  the file system type is determined from the file
			  /etc/default/fs.

	   -o specific_options
			  Specify options specific to each file system type.
			  specific_options is a list of suboptions and/or
			  keyword/attribute pairs intended for a specific
			  FStype-specific module of the command.  See the
			  file-system-specific man pages for a description
			  of the specific_options supported, if any.

	   -V		  Echo the completed command line, but perform no
			  other action.	 The command line is generated by
			  incorporating the user-specified options and other
			  information derived from /etc/fstab.	This option
			  allows the user to verify the command line.

 EXAMPLES
      List the path names and i-numbers of all files in the file system
      /dev/dsk/c1d2s0:

	   ff /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

      Execute the ff command on HFS file system /dev/dsk/c1d2s0:

	   ff -F hfs /dev/dsk/c1d2s0
