      ff - fast find: list file names and statistics for a VxFS file system

      /usr/sbin/ff [-F vxfs] [-VIlsu] [-a num] [-c num] [-i inode-list]
	   [-m num] [-n file] [-o s] [-p prefix] special...

      ff reads the inode list and directories of each special file, assuming
      it to be a VxFS file system, and prints inode data for files that
      match the selection criteria.  Output consists of the pathname for
      each saved inode, plus any other file information requested using the
      print options below.  Output fields are positional.  The output is
      produced in inode order; fields are separated by tabs.  The default
      line produced by ff is:

	   pathname inumber

      The maximum information ff displays is:

	   pathname inumber size owner

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

      ff recognizes the following options:

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

	   -c num	  Select a file if the inode has been changed in num

	   -F vxfs	  Specify the VxFS file system type.

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

	   -I		  Do not display the inode number after each

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

	   -m num	  Select a file associated with the inode if it has
			  been modified in num days.

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

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

	   -o s		  Print only special files and files with set-user-
			  ID mode (VxFS-specific option).

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

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

	   -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 pathnames and inumbers of all files in the file system

	   ff /dev/vg01/rlvol1

      Same as above, but suppress the printing of inumbers:

	   ff -I /dev/vg01/rlvol1

      List files on the same file system that have been modified in the last
      two days (-m -2), displaying the pathname, inumber, and owner's user
      name (-u).

	   ff -m -2 -u /dev/vg01/rlvol1

      List all files on the same file system, including the pathname and
      inumber of each file, that were last accessed more than 30 days ago
      (-a +30):

	   ff -a +30 /dev/vg01/rlvol1

      Find all pathnames associated with inodes 451 and 76 (-l):

	   ff  -l  -i  451,76  /dev/vg01/rlvol1

      Execute the ff command on a VxFS file system /dev/vg01/rlvol1:

	   ff -F vxfs /dev/vg01/rlvol1
