mkfs.bfs - make an SCO bfs filesystem


   mkfs.bfs [options] device [block-count]


   mkfs.bfs  creates  an  SCO  bfs filesystem on a block device (usually a
   disk partition or a file accessed via the loop device).

   The block-count parameter is the desired size  of  the  filesystem,  in
   blocks.  If nothing is specified, the entire partition will be used.


   -N, --inodes number
          Specify  the desired number of inodes (at most 512).  If nothing
          is specified, some default number in the range 48--512 is  picked
          depending on the size of the partition.

   -V, --vname label
          Specify the volume label.  I have no idea if/where this is used.

   -F, --fname name
          Specify  the  filesystem  name.  I have no idea if/where this is

   -v, --verbose
          Explain what is being done.

   -c     This option is silently ignored.

   -l     This option is silently ignored.

   -h, --help
          Display help text and exit.

   -V, --version
          Display version information and exit.  Option -V only  works  as
          --version when it is the only option.


   The  exit code returned by mkfs.bfs is 0 when all went well, and 1 when
   something went wrong.




   The mkfs.bfs command is part of the util-linux package and is available
