clri - clear i-node SYNOPSIS
clri filesystem i-number ... DESCRIPTION
Clri writes zeros on the i-nodes with the decimal i-numbers on the filesystem. After clri, any blocks in the affected file will show up as `missing' in an icheck(1) of the filesystem. Read and write permission is required on the specified file system device. The i-node becomes allocatable. The primary purpose of this routine is to remove a file which for some reason appears in no directory. If it is used to zap an i-node which does appear in a directory, care should be taken to track down the entry and remove it. Otherwise, when the i-node is reallocated to some new file, the old entry will still point to that file. At that point removing the old entry will destroy the new file. The new entry will again point to an unallocated i-node, so the whole cycle is likely to be repeated again and again. SEE ALSO
icheck(1) BUGS
If the file is open, clri is likely to be ineffective. CLRI(1M)

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), 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. 4th Berkeley Distribution April 19, 1994 4th Berkeley Distribution
