mkcramfs - make a compressed ROM file system

 

SYNOPSIS

mkcramfs [-h] [-b blksize] [-e edition] [-i file] [-n name] dirname outfile

 

DESCRIPTION

This manual page documents briefly the mkcramfs 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.
