NAME [Toc] [Back]
ff - list file names and statistics for a file system
SYNOPSIS [Toc] [Back]
/usr/sbin/ff [-F FStype] [-o specific_options] [-V] special ...
DESCRIPTION [Toc] [Back]
The ff command reads the i-list and directories of each special file,
assuming it to be a file system, saving i-node data for files that
match the selection criteria. Output consists of the path name for
each saved i-node, plus any other file information requested with the
-o option. Output fields are positional. The output is produced in
i-node order; fields are separated by tabs. The default line produced
by ff includes the path name and i-number fields.
Options and Arguments [Toc] [Back]
ff recognizes the following options and arguments:
-F FStype Specify the file system type on which to operate
(see fstyp(1M) and fs_wrapper(5)). If this option
is not included on the command line, then the file
system type is determined from the file /etc/fstab
by matching each special with an entry in that
file. If there is no entry in /etc/fstab, then
the file system type is determined from the file
Specify options specific to each file system type.
specific_options is a list of suboptions and/or
keyword/attribute pairs intended for a specific
FStype-specific module of the command. See the
file-system-specific man pages for a description
of the specific_options supported, if any.
-V Echo the completed command line, but perform no
other action. The command line is generated by
incorporating the user-specified options and other
information derived from /etc/fstab. This option
allows the user to verify the command line.
