jls - Man Page

List the contents of a file system journal


jls [-f fstype ] [-vV] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images] [inode]


jls lists the records and entries in a file system journal.  If inode is given, then it will look there for a journal.  Otherwise, it will use the default location.  The output lists the journal block number and a description.


-f fstype

Specify the file system type.   Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.

-i imgtype

Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split.  Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.

-o imgoffset

The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.  

-b dev_sector_size

The size, in bytes, of the underlying device sectors.  If not given, the value in the image format is used (if it exists) or 512-bytes is assumed.
