NCHECK(8) System Manager's Manual NCHECK(8)
ncheck - generate names from i-numbers
/etc/ncheck [ -i numbers ] [ -a ] [ -s ] [ filesystem ]
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.
sort(1), dcheck(8), fsck(8), icheck(8)
When the filesystem structure is improper, `??' denotes the `parent' of
a parentless file and a pathname beginning with `...' denotes a loop.
