       mkudffs - create an UDF filesystem


       mkudffs [ switches ] device [ blocks-count ]


       mkudffs  is  used  to create a UDF filesystem on a device (usually a disk).  device is the
       special file corresponding to the device (e.g /dev/hdX). blocks-count  is  the  number  of
       blocks on the device.  If omitted, mkudffs automagically figures the file system size.


       --help Display the usage and list of options.

       -b,--blocksize= block-size
              Specify the size of blocks in bytes. Valid block size vales are 1024, 2048 and 4096
              bytes per block. If omitted, mkudffs block-size is 2048.

       -r,--udfrev= udf-revision
              Specify the udf revision to use. Valid revisions are 0x0201,  0x0200,  0x0150,  and
              0x0102. If omitted, mkudffs udf-revision is 0x0201.

       --lvid= logical-volume-ident
              Specify the logical volume identifier.

       --vid= volume-ident
              Specify the volume identifier.

       --vsid= volume-set-ident
              Specify the volume set identifier.

       --fsid= file-set-ident
              Specify the file set identifier.

       --strategy= strategy
              Specify  the  allocation  strategy  to  use.  Valid  strategies are 4 and 4096.  If
              omitted, mkudffs strategy is based on the media-type.

       --spartable= spartable-number
              Specify the number of sparing tables to write to disc. Valid numbers  are  1  -  4.
              This option implies --media-type=cdrw.

       --media-type= media-type
              Specify the media type. Valid media types are:

                   hd              hard drive

                   dvd             DVD (Digital Versatile Disc)

                   mo              MO (Magneto Optical)

                   cdrw            CD-RW (CD Read-Write)

       --space= space

                   freedbitmap     Freed bitmap

                   freedtable      Freed table

                   unallocbitmap   Unallocated bitmap

                   unalloctable    Unallocated table

       --ad= ad

                   inicb           Allocation Descriptors in ICB

                   short           Short Allocation Descriptors

                   long            Long Allocation Descriptors

              Don't Use Extended File Entries

       --u8   Use 8-bit unicode for file names

       --u16  Use 16-bit unicode for file names

       --utf8 Use UTF-8 for file names


       mkudffs returns 0 if successful, non-zero if there are problems.
