CLRI(8) 			   BSD System Manager's Manual				  CLRI(8)

NAME
     clri -- clear an inode

SYNOPSIS
     clri special_device inode_number ...

DESCRIPTION
     clri is obsoleted for normal file system repair work by fsck(8).

     clri zeros out the inodes with the specified inode number(s) on the filesystem residing on
     the given special_device.	The fsck(8) utility is usually run after clri to reclaim the
     zero'ed 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
     fsck(8), fsdb(8)

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