clri -- clear an inode
clri special_device inode_number ...
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), icheck(8), ncheck(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.

clri - clear inode
special i-number ...
The command clears the inode i-number by filling it with zeros. special must be a special file name referring to a device containing a
file system. For proper results, special should not be mounted (see WARNINGS below). After is executed, all blocks in the affected file
show up as "missing" in an of special (see fsck(1M)). This command should only be used in emergencies.
Read and write permission is required on the specified special device. The inode becomes allocatable.
The primary purpose of this command is to remove a file that for some reason does not appear in any directory. If it is used to clear an
inode that does appear in a directory, care should be taken to locate the entry and remove it. Otherwise, when the inode is reallocated to
some new file, the old entry in the directory will still point to that file. At that point, removing the old entry destroys the new file,
causing the new entry to point to an unallocated inode, so the whole cycle is likely to be repeated again.
If the file system is mounted, is likely to be ineffective.
operates only on file systems of type
