NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     clri -- clear an inode

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     clri special_device inode_number ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The clri utility is obsoleted for normal file system repair work by

     The clri utility zeroes out the inodes with the specified inode number(s)
     on the file system residing on the given special_device.  The fsck(8)
     utility is usually run after clri to reclaim the zeroed inode(s) and the
     blocks previously claimed by those inode(s).  Both read and write permission
 are required on the specified special_device.

     The primary purpose of this routine is to remove a file which for some
     reason is not being properly handled by fsck(8).  Once removed, it is
     anticipated that fsck(8) will be able to clean up the resulting mess.

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]

     fsck(8), fsdb(8)

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     If the file is open, the work of clri will be lost when the inode is
     written back to disk from the inode cache.
