AFILE(1)			     General Commands Manual				 AFILE(1)

NAME
       afile - display type and creator of Apple Macintosh files (netatalk format)

SYNOPSIS
       afile [ -a ] file ...

DESCRIPTION
       afile  displays	the  name  and	Macintosh  type  and creator of the file arguments. Tests
       whether the file is an AppleDouble header, in which case it checks the corresponding  data
       fork  exists,  or  assumes  it is a data fork in which case it looks for the corresponding
       AppleDouble to find the type/creator information.

       afile does not look at any of the extension mapping files such as AppleVolumes.system.

OPTIONS
       -a     Include directories and data files of  unknown  type  (i.e.  without  corresponding
	      AppleDouble) in output.

DIAGNOSTICS
       returns exit status 0 if all files have a corresponding valid  .AppleDouble header or data
       fork, or 99 for bad command line options. Otherwise it returns the  following  error  code
       relating to the last invalid file.

       1  file doesn't exist
       2  file is unreadable
       3  file is directory
       4  file is AppleDouble without data fork
       5  file is AppleDouble with unreadable data fork
       6  file is data fork without AppleDouble
       7  file is data fork with unreadable AppleDouble
       8  file is data fork with short AppleDouble
       9  bad magic in AppleDouble
