NAME

cramfsck - check a compressed ROM file system  

SYNOPSIS

cramfsck [-hv] [-x dir] file  

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the cramfsck command. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used by others), because the original program does not have a manual page.

cramfsck checks the consistency of a CramFs file system given by file. Unlike other file system checkers, it does not attempt to repair a broken file system. This is not a deficiency as CramFs is not subject to the kind of corruption that a writable file system may endure.

cramfsck is also able to extract the contents of the file system.  

OPTIONS

-h
Give a brief help message.
-v
Turn on verbose mode.
-x dir
In addition to checking the given file system, extract its contents into dir.
