NAME

ils - list inode information  

SYNOPSIS



ils [-emOpvV] [-f fstype] [-s seconds] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset]
image [images] [start-stop]

ils [-aAlLvVzZ] [-f fstype] [-s seconds] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] image [images] [start-stop]  

DESCRIPTION

ils opens the named image(s) and lists inode information. By default, ils lists only the inodes of removed files.

Arguments:

-e
List every inode in the file system.
-f fstype
Specifies the file system type. Use the -? argument to display all supported types. If not given, the default type for the platform is used.
-s seconds
The time skew of the original system in seconds. For example, if the original system was 100 seconds slow, this value would be -100.
-m
Display the inode details in the format that the mactime program reads (replaces the ils2mac script from TCT)
-O
List only inodes of removed files that are still open or executing. This option is short-hand notation for -aL "(see the fine controls section below). (this used to be -o).
-p
Display orphan inodes (unallocated with no file name)
-r
(default) List only inodes of removed files. This option is short-hand notation for -LZ (see the fine controls section below).
-i imgtype
Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split. Raw is the default.
-o imgoffset
The sector offset where the file system starts in the image. Non-512 byte sectors can be specified using '@' (32@2048).
-v
Turn on verbose mode, output to stderr.
-V
Display Version.
image [images]
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
start-stop
Examine the specified inode number or number range.

Fine controls:

-a
List only allocated inodes: these belong to files with at least one directory entry in the file system, and to removed files that are still open or executing.
-A
List only unallocated inodes: these belong to files that no longer exist.
-l
List only inodes with at least one hard link. These belong to files with at least one directory entry in the file system.
-L
List only inodes without any hard links. These belong to files that no longer exist, and to removed files that are still open or executing.
-z
List only inodes with zero status change time. Presumably, these inodes were never used.
-Z
List only inodes with non-zero status change time. Presumably, these belong to files that still exist, or that existed in the past.

The output format is in time machine format, as described in tm-format(5). The output begins with a two-line header that describes the data origin, and is followed by a one-line header that lists the names of the data attributes that make up the remainder of the output:

st_ino
The inode number.
st_alloc
Allocation status: `a' for allocated inode, `f' for free inode.
st_uid
Owner user ID.
st_gid
Owner group ID.
st_mtime
UNIX time (seconds) of last file modification.
st_atime
UNIX time (seconds) of last file access.
st_ctime
UNIX time (seconds) of last inode status change.
st_dtime
UNIX time (seconds) of file deletion (LINUX only).
st_mode
File type and permissions (octal).
st_nlink
Number of hard links.
st_size
File size in bytes.
st_block0,st_block1
The first two entries in the direct block address list.
