       ntfsls - list directory contents on an NTFS filesystem

       ntfsls [ -a | --all ] [ -F | --classify ] [ -f | --force ] [ -h | -?  |
       --help ] [ -i | --inode ] [ -l | --long ] [ -p | --path PATH ] [  -q  |
       --quiet  ] [ -s | --system ] [ -V | --version ] [ -v | --verbose ] [ -x
       | --dos ] -d | --device DEVICE

       ntfsls is used to list information about the  files  specified  by  the
       PATH  option  (the  root  directory by default).  DEVICE is the special
       file corresponding to the device (e.g /dev/hdXX).

       -a, --all
              Display all files.  If this option is not specified  file  names
              in the POSIX namespace will not be displayed.

       -F, --classify
              Append indicator (one of */=@|) to entries.

       -f, --force
              Force execution.  For example necessary to run on an NTFS parti-
              tion stored in a normal file.

       -h, -?, --help
              Print the usage information of ntfsls and exit.

       -i, --inode
              Print inode number of each file.  This is the MFT reference num-
              ber in NTFS terminology.

       -l, --long
              Use a long listing format.

       -p, --path
              The  directory whose contents to list or the file (including the
              path) about which to display information.

       -q, --quiet
              Suppress some debug/warning/error messages.

       -s, --system
              Unless this options is specified, all  files  beginning  with  a
              dollar sign character will not be listed as these files are usu-
              ally system files.

       -V, --version
              Print the version number of ntfsls and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Display more debug/warning/error messages.

       -x, --dos
              Display short file names,  i.e.  files  in  the  DOS  namespace,
              instead of long file names, i.e. files in the WIN32 namespace.

       -d, --device DEVICE
              The  special  file corresponding to the device that contains the
              NTFS partition to read.  If you want to use an image of an  NTFS
              partition stored on a normal file, you will also need to specify
              the -f or --force options.

       We are not aware of any bugs.  If you find a bug, please report  it  to
       <linux-ntfs-devATlists.net>.  Thank you.
