CRAMFSCK(8)                 Debian GNU/Linux Manual                CRAMFSCK(8)



NAME
       cramfsck - check a compressed ROM file system

SYNOPSIS
       cramfsck [-hv] [-x dir] file

DESCRIPTION
       This  manual  page documents briefly the cramfsck command.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by others), because the original program does not have a manual page.

       cramfsck  checks the consistency of a CramFs file system given by file.
       Unlike other file system checkers, it does not attempt to repair a bro-
       ken  file system.  This is not a deficiency as CramFs is not subject to
       the kind of corruption that a writable file system may endure.

       cramfsck is also able to extract the contents of the file system.

OPTIONS
       -h     Give a brief help message.

       -v     Turn on verbose mode.

       -x dir In addition to checking the given file system, extract its  con-
              tents into dir.

AUTHOR
       cramfsck  is written by Linus Torvalds and Daniel Quinlan.  Manual page
       added by Herbert Xu.
