Generates path names from i-node numbers.
ncheck [ [ [ -a ] [ -i InNumber ... ] ] | [ -s ] ] [ FileSystem ]
The ncheck command displays the i-node number and path names for filesystem files. It uses question marks (??) displayed in the path to indicate a component that could not be found. Path names displayed with ... (ellipses) at the beginning indicate either a loop or a path name of greater than 10 entries. The ncheck command uses a simple hashing alogrithm to reconstruct the path names that it displays. Because of this, it is restricted to filesystems with less than 50,000 directory entries.
|-a||Lists the . (dot) and .. (dot dot) file names.|
|-i InNumber||Lists only the file or files specified by the InNumber parameter.|
|-s||Lists only special files and files with set-user-ID mode.|
ncheck -a /This lists the i-node number and path name of each file in the / (root) file system, including the .(dot) and .. (dot dot) entries in each directory.
ncheck -i 690 357 280 /tmpThis lists the i-node number and path name for every file in the /tmp file system with i-node numbers of 690 , 357 , or 280 . If a file has more than one link, all of its path names are listed.
ncheck -s /This lists the i-node and path name for every file in the / (root) file system that is a special file (also called a device file) or that has set-user-ID mode enabled.
