NAME
       jfs_debugfs - shell-type JFS file system editor


SYNOPSIS
       jfs_debugfs device


DESCRIPTION
       jfs_debugfs is a program which can be used to perform various low-level
       actions on a JFS formatted device.

       device is the special file name corresponding to the actual  device  to
       be edited (e.g. /dev/hdb1).

       jfs_debugfs must be run as root.
