File Formats                                             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  instal-
           lation 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
