mkfs_udfs - construct a udfs file system


mkfs -F udfs [ generic_options ] [ -o specific_options ] raw_device_file [ size ]


This is the universal disk format file system (udfs) -specific module of the mkfs command. mkfs constructs a udfs file system with a root directory.


See mkfs(1M) for the list of supported generic_options. The following options are supported: -o specific_options Specify a udfs-specific option. Specify udfs file system specific options in a comma-separated list with no intervening spaces. If invalid options are specified, a warning message is printed and the invalid options are ignored. The following specific_options are available: N Print the file system parameters without actually creating the file system. label=string Specify the label to be written into the volume header structures. Specify string as the name of the label. If string is not specified, a default string is generated in the form of *NoLabel*.


The following operands are supported: raw_device_file Specify the disk partition on which to write. size Specify the number of 512-byte blocks in the file system.
