NAME

jcat - Show the contents of a block in the file system journal.  

SYNOPSIS

jcat [-f fstype ] [-vV] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] image [images] ] [ inode ] jblk

 

DESCRIPTION

jcat shows the contents of a journal block in the file system journal. The inode address of the journal can be given or the default location will be used. Note that the block address is a journal block address and not a file system block. The raw output is given to STDOUT.

The options are as follows:

-f ftype
Specify the file system type. Use -? to get a list of supported types.
-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
Display version
-v
verbose output
image
One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
[inode]
The inode where the file system journal can be found.

jblk
The journal block to display.
