      ff - list file names and statistics for HFS file system

      /usr/sbin/ff [-F hfs] [-a num] [-c num] [-i inode-list] [-I] [-l]
	   [-m num] [-n file] [-p prefix] [-s] [-u] [-V] special ...

      The ff command reads the i-list and directories of each special file
      special, assuming it to be an HFS 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
      using the print options below.  Output fields are positional.  The
      output is produced in i-node order; fields are separated by tabs.	 The
      default line produced by ff contains the path name and i-number
      fields.  With all options specified, the output fields include path
      name, i-number, size, and user ID.

      The num parameter in the options descriptions is a decimal number,
      where +num means more than num, -num means less than num, and num
      means exactly num.  A day is defined as a 24-hour period.

      ff lists only a single path name out of many possible ones for an i-
      node with more than one link, unless you specify the -l option.  With
      -l, ff applies no selection criteria to the names listed.	 All
      possible names for every linked file on the file system are included
      in the output.  On very large file systems, memory may run out before
      ff completes execution.

    Options and Arguments
      ff recognizes the following options and arguments:

	   -a num	  Select a file if the i-node has been accessed in
			  num days.

	   -c num	  Select a file if the i-node has been changed in
			  num days.

	   -F hfs	  Specify the HFS file system type.

	   -i inode-list  Generate names for any i-node specified in the

	   -I		  Do not display the i-node number after each path

	   -l		  Generate a list of all path names for files with
			  more than one link.

	   -m num	  Select a file associated with an i-node if it has
			  been modified in num days.

	   -n file	  Select a file associated with an i-node if it has
			  been modified more recently than the specified

	   -p prefix	  Add the specified prefix to each path name.  The
			  default prefix is .  (dot).

	   -s		  Write the file size, in bytes, after each path

	   -u		  Write the owner's login name after each path name.

	   -V		  Echo the completed command line, but performs 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.

      List the path names and i-numbers of all files in the file system

	   ff /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

      Same as above, but suppress the printing of i-numbers:

	   ff -I /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

      List files on the same file system that have been modified recently,
      displaying the path name, i-number, and owner's user name (the -u
      option).	List only files that have been modified within the last two
      days (the -m -2 option):

	   ff -m -2 -u /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

      List all files on the same file system, including the path name and
      i-number of each file, that was last accessed more than 30 days ago
      (-a +30):

	   ff -a +30 /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

      Find all path names associated with i-nodes 451 and 76 (the -l

	   ff -l -i 451,76 /dev/dsk/c1d2s0

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

	   ff -F hfs /dev/dsk/c1d2s0
