NCHECK(8)                   System Manager's Manual                  NCHECK(8)



NAME
       ncheck -  generate names from i-numbers

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/ncheck [ -i numbers ]  [ -a ] [ -s ]  [ filesystem ]

DESCRIPTION
       N.B.:  For  most normal file system maintenance, the function of ncheck
       is subsumed by fsck(8).

       Ncheck with no argument generates a pathname vs. i-number list  of  all
       files  on  a set of default file systems.  Names of directory files are
       followed by `/.'.  The -i option reduces the report to only those files
       whose i-numbers follow.  The -a option allows printing of the names `.'
       and `..', which are ordinarily suppressed.  The -s option  reduces  the
       report to special files and files with set-user-ID mode; it is intended
       to discover concealed violations of security policy.

       A file system may be specified.

       The report is in no useful order, and probably should be sorted.

SEE ALSO
       sort(1), dcheck(8), fsck(8), icheck(8)

DIAGNOSTICS
       When the filesystem structure is improper, `??' denotes the `parent' of
       a parentless file and a pathname beginning with `...' denotes a loop.
