MKFS.BFS(8)           Linux System Administrator's Manual          MKFS.BFS(8)



NAME
       mkfs.bfs - make an SCO bfs filesystem

SYNOPSIS
       mkfs.bfs  [-N  nr-of-inodes] [-V volume-name] [-F fsname] device [size-
       in-blocks]

DESCRIPTION
       mkfs.bfs creates an SCO bfs file-system on a block  device  (usually  a
       disk partition or a file accessed via the loop device).

       The size-in-blocks parameter is the desired size of the file system, in
       blocks.  If nothing is specified, the entire partition will be used.

OPTIONS
       -N     Specify the desired number of inodes (at most 512).  If  nothing
              is  specified  some default number in the range 48-512 is picked
              depending on the size of the partition.

       -V volume-label
              Specify the volume label. I have no idea if/where this is used.

       -F fsname
              Specify the fsname. I have no idea if/where this is used.

       -v     Be verbose.

EXIT CODES
       The exit code returned by mkfs.bfs is 0 when all went well, and 1  when
