NAME

       fsck.cpm - check a CP/M file system

SYNOPSIS .

       fsck.cpm [-f format] [-n] image

DESCRIPTION .

       fsck.cpm is used to check and repair a CP/M file system.  After reading
       the directory, it makes two  passes.   The  first  pass  checks  extent
       fields for range and format violations (bad status, extent number, last
       record byte count, file name, extension, block  number,  record  count,
       size  of  .COM  files,  time stamp format, invalid password characters,
       invalid time stamp mode).  The second pass checks  extent  connectivity
       (multiple allocated blocks and duplicate directory entries).

       fsck.cpm can not yet repair all errors.

OPTIONS .

       -f format
              Use the given CP/M disk format instead of the default format.

       -n     Open the file system read-only and do not repair any errors.

RETURN VALUE .

       Upon successful completion, exit code 0 is returned.

ERRORS .

       Any errors are indicated by exit code 1.

FILES .

       /etc/cpmtools/diskdefs   CP/M disk format definitions

DIAGNOSTICS .

       image: used/total files (n.n%
              non-contiguous),  used/total blocks" No inconsistencies could be
              found.  The number of used files actually is the number of  used
              extents.  Since a file may use more than one extent, this may be
              greater than the actual number of files, but a  correct  measure
              would not reflect how many files could still be created at most.
              A file is  considered  fragmented,  if  sequential  data  blocks
              pointed  to  by  the  same  extent  do not have sequential block
              numbers.  The number of used blocks includes the blocks used for
              system tracks and the directory.
