filesystem debugger (generic)
fsdb [-F FSType]
[-o specific_options] special
fsdb is a filesystem debugger which allows for the manual repair
of a filesystem after a crash. special is a special device
used to indicate the filesystem to be debugged.
fsdb is intended for experienced users only.
FSType is the filesystem type to be debugged.
Since different FSTypes
have different structures and hence different debugging capabilities
the manual pages for the FSType-specific fsdb should
be consulted for a more detailed description of the debugging capabilities.
fsdb processes supplementary code set characters
according to the locale specified in the LC_CTYPE
environment variable [see LANG on
except that the ``f'' or ``="'' symbols do not display
multibyte characters correctly.
are options supported by the s5-specific module of fsdb.
Other FSTypes do not necessarily support these options.
specific_options indicate suboptions specified in a comma-separated
list of suboptions and/or keyword-attribute pairs for interpretation by
the FSType-specific module of the command.
The options are:
Specify the FSType on which to operate.
If -F FSType is not specified it will
be determined by matching the special with an
entry in /etc/vfstab. If this fails, heuristics
similiar to those used by
are used to determine the file
If the FSType is known beforehand, use the
-F option. This command executes faster
if it is not required to autodetect file system types.
Echo the complete command line,
but do not execute the command.
The command line is generated by using
the options and arguments provided by the user
and adding to them information
derived from /etc/vfstab.
This option should be used to
verify and validate the command line.
Specify FSType-specific options.

This command may not be supported for all FSTypes.
This command has been updated to handle files greater than 2GB.
