Schily's USER COMMANDS                                  LABEL(1L)


NAME

     label - manipulate Sun disk labels


SYNOPSIS

     label [ options ]


DESCRIPTION

     The label command manipulates Sun disk labels. It shares the
     menu  subroutines  with  the  sformat(1)  command  and  thus
     presents the same label and partition  menu  as  sformat(1).
     The  label however does not operate by sending SCSI commands
     to the drive but rather reads and writes files.


OPTIONS

     All boolean  options  can  be  abbreviated  by  their  first
     letter.

     -print
          Print the disk label and the partition table and exit.

     -set Read the disk label and partition table, set  the  disk
          driver  geometry  and partition tables according to the
          data read from file and disk and exit.

     lproto= label-name

     if= label-name
          Set the name of the input file. This  may  be  a  plain
          file or a raw disk device name.

     lname= label-name

     of= label-name
          Set the name of the output file. This may  be  a  plain
          file or a raw disk device name.

     f= label-name
          Set the name for both, the input and the  output  file.
          This may be a plain file or a raw disk device name.

     -help
          Prints a short summary  of  the  label(1)  options  and
          exists.

     -version
          Prints the label(1) version number string and exists.
