       cramfsck - check a compressed ROM file system


       cramfsck [-hv] [-x dir] file


       This  manual  page documents briefly the cramfsck command.  This manual
       page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution (but may be used
       by others), because the original program does not have a manual page.

       cramfsck  checks the consistency of a CramFs file system given by file.
       Unlike other file system checkers, it does  not  attempt  to  repair  a
       broken  file system.  This is not a deficiency as CramFs is not subject
       to the kind of corruption that a writable file system may endure.

       cramfsck is also able to extract the contents of the file system.


       -h     Give a brief help message.

       -v     Turn on verbose mode.

       -x dir In addition to checking  the  given  file  system,  extract  its
              contents into dir.
