     ff - list file names and statistics for a file system

     ff [-F FSType] [-V] [generic_options]  [-o specific_options]

     ff prints the pathnames and inode numbers of  files  in  the
     file  system  which  resides  on the special device special.
     Other information about  the  files  may  be  printed  using
     options  described below.  Selection criteria may be used to
     instruct  ff to only print information for certain files. If
     no  selection  criteria  are  specified, information for all
     files considered will  be  printed  (the  default);  the  -i
     option  may be used to limit files to those whose inodes are

     Output is sorted in  ascending  inode  number  order.    The
     default line produced by ff is:

          path-name i-number

     The maximum information the command will provide is:

          path-name i-number size uid

     -F                      Specify  the   FSType  on  which  to
                             operate.  The   FSType should either
                             be specified here or be determinable
                             from   /etc/vfstab  by  matching the
                             special with an entry in the  table,
                             or by consulting /etc/default/fs.

     -V                      Echo the complete command line,  but
                             do not execute the command. The com-
                             mand line is generated by using  the
                             options  and  arguments  provided by
                             the user and adding to them informa-
                             tion derived from  /etc/vfstab. This
                             option may be  used  to  verify  and
                             validate the command line.

     generic_options         Options that are supported  by  most
                             FSType-specific   modules   of   the
                             command.  The following options  are

                             -I              Do not print the  i-
                                             node   number  after
                                             each path name.

                             -l              Generate  a  supple-

                             -p prefix       The specified prefix
                                             will   be  added  to

                                             name. The default is
                                             `.' (dot).

                             -s              Print the file size,
                                             in bytes, after each
                                             path name.

                             -u              Print  the   owner's
