CLRI(8)			  BSD System Manager's Manual		       CLRI(8)

NAME
     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 zeroed inode(s) and the blocks pre-
     viously 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 an-
     ticipated that fsck(8) will be able to clean up the resulting mess.

SEE ALSO
     fsck(8), fsdb(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.
