NAME
     newfs_v7fs -- construct a new 7th Edition(V7) File System

SYNOPSIS
     newfs_v7fs [-FZ] [-B byte-order] [-n inodes] [-s sectors] [-V verbose] special

DESCRIPTION
     newfs_v7fs builds a 7th Edition(V7) file system on the specified special.	If it is a
     device, the size information will be taken from the disk label and before running newfs_v7fs
     the disk must be labeled using disklabel(8); the proper fstype is ``Version 7''.  Otherwise,
     the size must be specified on the command line.  V7 filesystem's block size and sector size
     are 512 byte.  Disk address limits are 24 bit.

     The following arguments are supported:

     -B byte-order    Specify the metadata byte order of the file system to be created.  Valid
		      byte orders are 'be', 'le', and 'pdp'.  If no byte order is specified, the
		      file system is created in host byte order.

     -F 	      Create file system to a regular file (needs the -s option).

     -n inodes	      This specifies the number of inodes for the filesystem.  If the number of
		      inodes exceeds 65536, it is reduced to 65536.

     -s sectors       Create file system with specified number of disk sectors.

     -V verbose       This controls the amount of information written to stdout:
			    0	 No output.
			    1	 Overall size, ilist size, endian and filename length.
			    2	 A progress bar.
			    3
			    4	 More verbose message.
		      The default is 3.

     -Z 	      Fill file with zeroes instead of creating a sparse file.
