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



NAME
       xfs_mkfile - create an XFS file

SYNOPSIS
       xfs_mkfile [-v] [-n] size[k|b|m|g] filename...

DESCRIPTION
       xfs_mkfile  creates  one or more files.  The file is padded with zeroes
       by default.  The default size is in bytes, but it  can  be  flagged  as
       kilobytes,  blocks, megabytes, or gigabytes with the k, b, m, or g suf-
       fixes, respectively.

OPTIONS
       -v     Verbose.  Report the names and sizes of created files.

       -n     No bytes.  Create a holey file - that is, do not write  out  any
              data, just seek to end of file and write a block.



                                                                 xfs_mkfile(8)
