       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 device.


       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 set.

       -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.
