NAME
     hfs.util -- HFS/HFS+ file system utility

SYNOPSIS
     hfs.util -m device mountpoint [mountflag1] [mountflag2] [mountflag3]
              [mountflag4]

     hfs.util -p device [mountflag1] [mountflag2] [mountflag3] [mountflag4]

     hfs.util -J [size] mountpoint

     hfs.util -U mountpoint

     hfs.util -I mountpoint

     hfs.util [-aksu] device

DESCRIPTION
     The hfs.util command supports the mounting, probing, and unmounting of
     HFS file systems.

     Options:

     -a       Adopt permissions for the HFS file system at device

     -I       Print out status information about the journal on the HFS file
              system at mountpoint

     -J [size]
              Enable journaling on the HFS file system mounted on mountpoint.
              An optional size may be specified (e.g. 32M for a 32 megabyte
              journal).

     -k       Get the UUID key for the HFS file system at device

     -m       Mount the HFS file system located on device onto mountpoint with
              the flags mountflag1 mountflag2 mountflag3 mountflag4

     -M       Force mount the HFS file system located on device onto
              mountpoint with the flags mountflag1 mountflag2 mountflag3
              mountflag4.  This is a deprecated option.

     -p       Probe the device for an HFS file system using the flags
              mountflag1 mountflag2 mountflag3 mountflag4

     -s       Set the UUID key (generates a new UUID value) for the HFS file
              system at device

     -u       Unmount the HFS file system located at device

     -U       Disable journaling on the HFS file system mounted on mountpoint

     The mountflags referenced above are either:

     o   removable or fixed

     o   readonly or writeable

     o   suid or nosuid

     o   dev or nodev
