xfs_mkfile(8)		    System Manager's Manual		 xfs_mkfile(8)

NAME
       xfs_mkfile - create an XFS file

SYNOPSIS
       xfs_mkfile [ -v ] [ -n ]	[ -p ] size[k|b|m|g] filename ...
       xfs_mkfile -V

DESCRIPTION
       xfs_mkfile creates one or more files. The file is padded	with zeroes by
       default.	 The default size is in	bytes, but it can be flagged as	 kilo-
       bytes, blocks, megabytes, or gigabytes with the k, b, m,	or g suffixes,
       respectively.

OPTIONS
       -v     Verbose. Report the names	and sizes of created files.

       -n     No bytes.	Create a holey file - that is, do not  write  out  any
	      data, just seek to end of	file and write a block.

       -p     Preallocate.   The  file	is preallocated, then overwritten with
	      zeroes, then truncated to	the desired size.

       -V     Prints the version number	and exits.
