.TH MKZFTREE "1" "30 July 2001" "zisofs-tools" "H. Peter Anvin"
mkzftree \- Create a zisofs/RockRidge compressed file tree
.B mkzftree
Takes an input file tree (\fIINPUT\fR) and create a corresponding
compressed file tree (\fIOUTPUT\fR) that can be used with an
appropriately patched
.BR mkisofs (8)
to create a transparent-compression iso9660/RockRidge filesystem using
the "ZF" compression records.
\fB\-f\fP, \fB\-\-force\fP
Always compress all files, even if they get larger when compressed.
\fB\-z\fP \fIlevel\fP, \fB\-\-level\fP \fIlevel\fP
Select compression level (1-9, default is 9).
\fB\-u\fP, \fB\-\-uncompress\fP
Uncompress an already compressed tree. This can be used to read a
compressed filesystem on a system which cannot read them natively.
\fB\-p\fP \fIparallelism\fP, \fB\-\-parallelism\fP \fIparallelism\fP
Compress in parallel. The
.I parallelism
value indicates how many compression threads are allowed to run.
\fB\-x\fP, \fB\-\-one-filesystem\fP
Do not cross filesystem boundaries, but create directory stubs at
mount points.
\fB\-X\fP, \fB\-\-strict-one-filesystem\fP
Do not cross filesystem boundaries, and do not create directory stubs
at mount points.
\fB\-l\fP, \fB\-\-local\fP
Do not recurse into subdirectories, but create the directories
\fB\-L\fP, \fB\-\-strict-local\fP
Do not recurse into subdirectories, and do not create directories.
\fB\-F\fP, \fB\-\-file\fP
Indicates that \fIINPUT\fP may not necessarily be a directory; this
allows operation on a single file. Note especially that if \fI\-F\fP
is specified, and \fIINPUT\fP is a symlink, the symlink itself will be
copied rather than whatever it happens to point to.
\fB\-s\fP, \fB\-\-sloppy\fP
Treat file modes, times and ownership data as less than precious
information and don't abort if they cannot be set.
\fB\-v\fP, \fB\-\-verbose\fP
Increase the program verbosity.
\fB\-V\fP \fIvalue\fP, \fB\-\-verbosity\fP \fIvalue\fP
Set the program verbosity to
.IR value .
\fB\-q\fP, \fB\-\-quiet\fP
Issue no messages whatsoever, including error messages. This is the same
as specifying
.IR "\-V\ 0" .
\fB\-h\fP, \fB\-\-help\fP
Display a brief help message.
\fB\-w\fP, \fB\-\-version\fP
Display the release version.
Long options (beginning with \fI\-\-\fP) may not work on all systems.
See the message printed out by \fImkzftree\ \-h\fP to see if this
applies to your system.
Inode change times (ctimes) are not copied. This is a system
limitation and applies to all file copy programs.
If using the parallel option (\fI\-z\fP) the access times (atimes) on
directories may or may not be copied. If it is important that the
atimes on directories are copied exactly, avoid using \fI\-z\fP.
