       mkexfatfs - create an exFAT file system


       mkexfatfs  [  -i  volume-id  ] [ -n volume-name ] [ -p partition-first-
       sector ] [ -s sectors-per-cluster ] [ -V ] device


       mkexfatfs creates an exFAT file system on a block device.  device is  a
       special file corresponding to the partition on the device. Note that if
       this is an MBR partition then the file system type  should  be  set  to
       0x07 (NTFS/exFAT) otherwise other operating systems may refuse to mount
       the file system.


       Command line options available:

       -i volume-id
              A 32-bit hexadecimal number. By default a value based on current
              time is set.

       -n volume-name
              Volume name (label), up to 15 characters. By default no label is

       -p partition-first-sector
              First sector of the partition starting from the beginning of the
              whole disk.  exFAT super block has a field for this value but in
              fact it's optional and does not affect anything. Default is 0.

       -s sectors-per-cluster
              Number of physical sectors per cluster (cluster is an allocation
              unit  in  exFAT).  Must  be  a power of 2, i.e. 1, 2, 4, 8, etc.
              Cluster size can not exceed 32 MB. Default cluster sizes are:  4
              KB  if  volume size is less than 256 MB, 32 KB if volume size is
              from 256 MB to 32 GB, 128 KB if volume size is 32 GB or larger.

       -V     Print version and copyright.


       Zero is returned on successful creation. Any other code means an error.
