NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     clri - clear inodes

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     clri special_device inode_number [...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     clri is obsoleted for normal  file  system  repair  work  by

     clri  zeros  out the inodes with the specified inode numbers
on the
     filesystem  residing  on  the  given  special_device.    The
fsck(8) utility is
     usually run after clri to reclaim the zero'ed inodes and the
blocks previously
 claimed by those inodes.  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]

     inode(5), fsck(8), fsdb(8), ncheck(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.
