NAME
       jfs_fscklog - extract a JFS fsck service log into a file and/or format
       and display the extracted file


SYNOPSIS
       jfs_fscklog [ -d ] [ -e device ] [ -f output.file ] [ -p ] [ -V ]


DESCRIPTION
       jfs_fscklog with option -e device extracts the contents of either the
       most recent or immediately prior (specified with option -p) JFS fsck
       service log from the specified device, and writes the output to a file.
       The file name may be specified with the -f option, or the default file
       name is <pwd>fscklog.new.  If the -p option is used, the default file
       name is <pwd>fscklog.old.

       jfs_fscklog with option -d formats and displays the contents of the
       extracted file.

       jfs_fscklog with options -d and -e device extracts and displays the JFS
       fsck service log.


OPTIONS
       -d     Format and display a previously extracted JFS fsck service log.

       -e device
              Extract the JFS fsck service log from device and store it in a
              file.  (device is the special file name corresponding to the
              actual device from which the fsck log will be extracted (e.g.
              /dev/hdb1 )).

       -f file.name
              Specify the file name, overriding the default file name.  When
              used with -e device, file.name specifies the name of the file
              into which the JFS fsck log will be extracted.  When used with
              -d, file.name specifies the name of the extracted file whose
              contents will be formatted and displayed.

              file.name must be 127 characters or less in length.

              file.name will be created in the present working directory
              unless it is fully qualified.

       -p     Extract the prior log (as opposed to the most recent log).

       -V     Print version information and exit (regardless of any other
              chosen options).

EXAMPLES
        Extract the most recent JFS fsck log on /dev/hda5 into
       <pwd>fscklog.new:

              jfs_fscklog -e /dev/hda5

       Extract the most recent JFS fsck log on /dev/hdb3 into
       /temp/l9651107.log:

              jfs_fscklog -e /dev/hdb3 -f /temp/l9651107.log

       Display the JFS fsck log that was extracted into /temp/l9651107.log:

              jfs_fscklog -d -f /temp/l9651107.log

       Extract and display the previous JFS fsck log from /dev/hda8:

              jfs_fscklog -e /dev/hda8 -d -p
