istat - Display details of a meta-data structure (i.e. inode)
] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-vV] [-z
image [images] inode
displays the uid, gid, mode, size, link number, modified , accessed,
changed times, and all the disk units a structure has allocated.
The options are as follows:
- -b num
Display the addresses of num disk units. Useful when the inode is
unallocated with size 0, but still has block pointers.
- -f fstype
Specify the file system type. Use the -? option for 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.
- -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).
Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr
- -z zone
An ASCII string of the original system's time zone. For example, EST5EDT or
GMT. These strings are defined by the operating system and may
vary. NOTE: This has changed since TCTUTILs.
- image [images]
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
Meta-data number to display stats on
istat first appeared in TCTUTILs v1.0.
