NAME
jfs_debugfs - shell-type JFS file system editor SYNOPSIS
jfs_debugfs device DESCRIPTION
jfs_debugfs is a program which can be used to perform various low-level actions on a JFS formatted device. device is the special file name corresponding to the actual device to be edited (e.g. /dev/hdb1). jfs_debugfs must be run as root. COMMANDS
