       mkcramfs - make a compressed ROM file system


       mkcramfs  [-h]  [-b  blksize]  [-e edition] [-i file] [-n name] dirname


       This manual page documents briefly the mkcramfs 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.
