fsdb(1M)							      fsdb(1M)

NAME
       fsdb - file system debugger (generic)

SYNOPSIS
       FStype] specific_options] special

   Remarks
       Always execute the command (see fsck(1M)) after running

DESCRIPTION
       The  command  can  be  used  to	patch up a damaged file	system after a
       crash.  It is intended for experienced users  only.   The  file	system
       type  to	be debugged is specified as FStype.  Each file system type has
       a unique	structure requiring  different	debugging  capabilities.   The
       manual  entries for the file-system-specific should be consulted	before
       attempting any debugging	or modifications.

   Options and Arguments
       recognizes the following	options	and arguments:

	      special	     The file name of the special file containing  the
			     file system.

	      Specify the file system type on which to operate (see
			     fstyp(1M)	and fs_wrapper(5)).  If	this option is
			     not included on the command line, then  the  file
			     system type is determined from the	file by	match-
			     ing special with an entry in that file.  If there
			     is	 no  entry in then the file system type	is de-
			     termined from the file

	      Specify suboptions specific to each file system type.
			     specific_options is  a  comma-separated  list  of
			     suboptions	 and/or	 keyword/attribute  pairs sup-
			     ported by the specific FStype.

	      Echo the completed command line, but perform no other action.
			     The command line is  generated  by	 incorporating
			     the  user-specified options and other information
			     derived from the file.  This  option  allows  the
			     user to verify the	command	line.

EXAMPLES
       Invoke the file system debugger on HFS file system

       Display a completed command line	without	executing the debugger:

       The previous command might display:

WARNINGS
