ncheck - generate names from i-numbers SYNOPSIS
ncheck [ -i numbers ] [ -a ] [ -s ] [ filesystem ] DESCRIPTION
Ncheck with no argument generates a pathname vs. i-number list of all files on a set of default file systems. Names of directory files are followed by `/.'. The -i option reduces the report to only those files whose i-numbers follow. The -a option allows printing of the names `.' and `..', which are ordinarily suppressed. suppressed. The -s option reduces the report to special files and files with set-user-ID mode; it is intended to discover concealed violations of security policy. A file system may be specified. The report is in no useful order, and probably should be sorted. SEE ALSO
dcheck(1), icheck(1), sort(1) DIAGNOSTICS
When the filesystem structure is improper, `??' denotes the `parent' of a parentless file and a pathname beginning with `...' denotes a loop. NCHECK(1M)

xfs_ncheck - generate pathnames from i-numbers for XFS SYNOPSIS
xfs_ncheck [ -i ino ] ... [ -f ] [ -s ] [ -l logdev ] device DESCRIPTION
xfs_ncheck with no -i arguments generates an inode number and pathname list of all files on the given filesystem. Names of directory files are followed by /.. The output is not sorted in any particular order. The filesystem to be examined is specified by the device argument, which should be the disk or volume device for the filesystem. Filesystems stored in files can also be checked, using the -f flag. OPTIONS
-f Specifies that the filesystem image to be processed is stored in a regular file at device (see the mkfs.xfs -d file option). This might happen if an image copy of a filesystem has been made into an ordinary file. -l logdev Specifies the device where the filesystem's external log resides. Only for those filesystems which use an external log. See the mkfs.xfs -l option, and refer to xfs(5) for a detailed description of the XFS log. -s Limits the report to special files and files with setuserid mode. This option may be used to detect violations of security pol- icy. -i ino Limits the report to only those files whose inode numbers follow. May be given multiple times to select multiple inode numbers. If the filesystem is seriously corrupted, or very busy and looks like it is corrupt, a message of the form that would be generated by xfs_check(8) may appear. xfs_ncheck is only useful with XFS filesystems.
