NAME
       ad - Netatalk compatible	UNIX file utility suite.

SYNOPSIS
       ad {ls |	cp | mv	| rm} [...]

       ad {-v |	--version}

DESCRIPTION
       ad is a UNIX file utility suite with Netatalk compatibility.
       AppleDouble data	(extended attributes of	files, ._files in same
       directories or files in .AppleDouble directories) and the CNID
       databases are updated as	appropriate.

AVAILABLE COMMANDS
       ad ls [-dRl [u]]	{file|dir [...]}

       List files and directories.

       ad cp [-aipvf] {src_file} {dst_file}

       ad cp -R	[-aipvf] {src_file|src_directory ...} {dst_directory}

       Copy files and directories.

       ad mv [-finv] {src_file}	{dst_file}

       ad mv [-finv] {src_file|src_directory ...} {dst_directory}

       Move files and directories.

       ad rm [-Rv] {file|directory}

       Remove files and	directories.

       ad -v|--version

       Show version.

AD LS
       List files and directories. Options:

       -d
	   Directories are listed as plain files

       -R
	   list	subdirectories recursively

       -l
	   Long	output,	list AFP info

       -u
	   List	UNIX info

       Long output description

	   <unixinfo> <FinderFlags> <AFP Attributes> <Color> <Type> <Creator> <CNID from AppleDouble> <name>

	   FinderFlags (valid for (f)iles and/or (d)irectories):

	     d = On Desktop			 (f/d)
	     e = Hidden	extension		 (f/d)
	     m = Shared	(can run multiple times) (f)
	     n = No INIT resources		 (f)
	     i = Inited				 (f/d)
	     c = Custom	icon			 (f/d)
	     t = Stationery			 (f)
	     s = Name locked			 (f/d)
	     b = Bundle				 (f/d)
	     v = Invisible			 (f/d)
	     a = Alias file			 (f/d)

	   AFP Attributes:

	     y = System				 (f/d)
	     w = No write			 (f)
	     p = Needs backup			 (f/d)
	     r = No rename			 (f/d)
	     l = No delete			 (f/d)
	     o = No copy			 (f)

	   Note: any letter appearing in uppercase means the flag is set but it's a directory for which	the flag is not	allowed.

AD CP
       Copy files and directories.

       In the first synopsis form, the cp utility copies the contents of the
       src_file	to the dst_file. In the	second synopsis	form, the contents of
       each named src_file is copied to	the destination	dst_directory. The
       names of	the files themselves are not changed. If cp detects an attempt
       to copy a file to itself, the copy will fail.

       When a copy targeting an	AFP volume is detected,	its CNID database
       daemon is connected and all copies will also go through the CNID
       database. AppleDouble data are also copied and created as needed	when
       the target is an	AFP volume.

       Options:

       -a
	   Archive mode. Same as -Rp.

       -f
	   For each existing destination pathname, remove it and create	a new
	   file, without prompting for confirmation regardless of its
	   permissions.	(The -f	option overrides any previous -i or -n
	   options.)

       -i
	   Cause cp to write a prompt to the standard error output before
	   copying a file that would overwrite an existing file. If the
	   response from the standard input begins with	the character 'y' or
	   'Y',	the file copy is attempted. (The -i option overrides any
	   previous -f or -n options.)

       -n
	   Do not overwrite an existing	file. (The -n option overrides any
	   previous -f or -i options.)

       -p
	   Cause cp to preserve	the following attributes of each source	file
	   in the copy:	modification time, access time,	file flags, file mode,
	   user	ID, and	group ID, as allowed by	permissions. If	the user ID
	   and group ID	cannot be preserved, no	error message is displayed and
	   the exit value is not altered.

       -R
	   If src_file designates a directory, cp copies the directory and the
	   entire subtree connected at that point. If the src_file ends	in a
	   /, the contents of the directory are	copied rather than the
	   directory itself.

       -v
	   Cause cp to be verbose, showing files as they are copied.

       -x
	   File	system mount points are	not traversed.

AD MV
       Move files and directories.

       Move files around within	an AFP volume, updating	the CNID database as
       needed. If either:

       o   source or destination is not	an AFP volume

       o   source AFP volume !=	destination AFP	volume

       the files are copied and	removed	from the source.

       Options:

       -f
	   Do not prompt for confirmation before overwriting the destination
	   path. (The -f option	overrides any previous -i or -n	options.)

       -i
	   Cause mv to write a prompt to standard error	before moving a	file
	   that	would overwrite	an existing file. If the response from the
	   standard input begins with the character `y'	or `Y',	the move is
	   attempted. (The -i option overrides any previous -f or -n options.)

       -n
	   Do not overwrite an existing	file. (The -n option overrides any
	   previous -f or -i options.)

       -v
	   Cause mv to be verbose, showing files after they are	moved.

AD RM
       Remove files and	directories.

       The rm utility attempts to remove the non-directory type	files
       specified on the	command	line. If the files and directories reside on
       an AFP volume, the corresponding	CNIDs are deleted from the volumes
       database.

       The options are as follows:

       -R
	   Attempt to remove the file hierarchy	rooted in each file argument.

       -v
	   Be verbose when deleting files, showing them	as they	are removed.

REPORTING BUGS
       Report bugs to the Netatalk-devel list
       <netatalk-devel@lists.sourceforge.net>.
