fstyp - determine file system type SYNOPSIS
fstyp [-v] special DESCRIPTION
fstyp allows the user to determine the file system type of unmounted file systems using heuristic programs. An fstyp module for each file system type to be checked is executed; each of these modules applies an appropriate heuristic to determine whether the supplied special file is of the type for which it checks. If it is, the program prints on standard output the usual file sys- tem identifier for that type (for example, ``ufs'') and exits with a return code of 0; if none of the modules succeed, the error message unknown_fstyp (no matches) is returned and the exit status is 1. If more than one module succeeds, the error message unknown_fstyp (multi- ple matches) is returned and the exit status is 2. OPTIONS
-v Produce verbose output. This is usually information about the file systems superblock and varies across different FSTypes. See ufs(7FS), mkfs_ufs(1M), and tunefs(1M) for details. USAGE
See largefile(5) for the description of the behavior of fstyp when encountering files greater than or equal to 2 Gbyte ( 2**31 bytes). ATTRIBUTES

fstyp_mod_init, fstyp_mod_fini, fstyp_mod_ident, fstyp_mod_get_attr, fstyp_mod_dump - libfstyp module interface SYNOPSIS
cc [ flag... ] file... -lfstyp -lnvpair [ library... ] #include <libnvpair.h> #include <libfstyp.h> int fstyp_mod_init(int fd, off64_t **offset, fstyp_mod_handle_t *handle); void fstyp_mod_fini(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle); int fstyp_mod_ident(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle); int fstyp_mod_get_attr(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle, nvlist_t **attr); int fstyp_mod_dump(fstyp_mod_handle_t handle, FILE *fout, FILE *ferr); PARAMETERS
fd Open file descriptor of a block or a raw device that contains the file system to be identified. offset Offset from the beginning of the device where the file system is located. handle Opaque handle that the module returns in fstyp_mod_init() and is used with other module functions. fout Output stream. ferr Error stream. DESCRIPTION
A libfstyp module implements heuristics required to identify a file system type. The modules are shared objects loaded by libfstyp. The libfstyp modules are located in /usr/lib/fs subdirectories. A subdirectory name defines the name of the file system. Each module exports the fstyp_mod_init(), fstyp_mod_fini(), fstyp_mod_ident(), and fstyp_mod_get_attr() functions. All of these functions map directly to the respective libfstyp interfaces. The fstyp_mod_dump() function is optional. It can be used to output unformatted information about the file system. This function is used by the fstyp(1M) command when the -v option is specified. The fstyp_mod_dump() function is not recommended and should be used only in legacy modules. FILES
/usr/lib/fs/ Default module directory. /usr/lib/fs/fstype/ Default path to a libfstyp module for an fstype file system. ATTRIBUTES
