NCHECK_FFS(8)           OpenBSD System Manager's Manual          NCHECK_FFS(8)

     ncheck_ffs - generate names from inode-numbers

     ncheck_ffs [-ams] [-f format] [-i number [...]] filesystem

     ncheck_ffs generates a list of filenames and inode numbers for the given
     file system.  Names of directories are followed by a `.'.

     The options are as follows:

     -a      Print the file names `.' and `..', which are ordinarily skipped.

     -f format
             Use a custom output format when printing inode information.
             Characters from format are printed for each inode with the fol-
             lowing escape sequences:

                   \a      Print a <bell> character.
                   \b      Print a <backspace> character.
                   \e      Print an <escape> character.
                   \f      Print a <form-feed> character.
                   \I      Print the inode number.
                   \n      Print a <new-line> character.
                   \P      Print the pathname to the file using the current
                           inode number.
                   \r      Print a <carriage return> character.
                   \t      Print a <tab> character.
                   \v      Print a <vertical tab> character.
                   \'      Print a <single quote> character.
                   \\      Print a backslash character.
                   \0      Print a NUL character.

             All other characters, when prefixed by a backslash, simply print
             the character following the backslash.  The device name is not
             printed on the first line of output when the -f option is speci-

     -i number [...]
             Report only those files whose inode numbers are as listed.

     -m      Give more verbose information on inodes.

     -s      Report only special files and files with set-user-ID or set-
             group-ID set.  This is meant to find hidden violations of securi-
             ty policies.

     The report is not sorted.

     sort(1), fsck(8), fsdb(8)

     The ncheck_ffs command was designed to be similar in functionality to the
     corresponding command in SunOS 4.1.3.
