NAME

       mountpoint - see if a directory is a mountpoint

SYNOPSIS

       /bin/mountpoint [-q] [-d] /path/to/directory
       /bin/mountpoint -x /dev/device

DESCRIPTION

       Mountpoint checks if the directory is a mountpoint.

OPTIONS

       -q     Be quiet - don't print anything.

       -d     Print major/minor device number of the filesystem on stdout.

       -x     Print major/minor device number of the blockdevice on stdout.

EXIT STATUS

       Zero if the directory is a mountpoint, non-zero if not.

NOTES

       Symbolic  links  are  not  followed, except when the -x option is used. To force following
       symlinks, add a trailing slash to the path of the directory.

       The name of the command is misleading when the -x option is used, but the option is useful
       for comparing if a directory and a device match up, and there is no other command that can
       print the info easily.
