       clri - clear inodes

       /etc/clri filesystem i-number ...

       The command has been superseded by for normal file system repair work.

       The  command  writes zeros on the i-nodes with the decimal i-numbers on
       the filesystem.	After any blocks in the affected file will show up  as
       `missing' in an of the filesystem.

       Read  and  write	 permission  is	 required on the specified file system
       device.	The i-node becomes allocatable.

       The primary purpose of this command is to remove a file which for  some
       reason  appears	in no directory.  If it is used to zap an i-node which
       does appear in a directory, care should be  taken  to  track  down  the
       entry and remove it.  Otherwise, when the i-node is reallocated to some
       new file, the old entry will still point to that file.  At  that	 point
       removing	 the  old entry will destroy the new file.  The new entry will
       again point to an unallocated i-node, so the whole cycle is  likely  to
       be repeated again and again.

       If the file is open, is likely to be ineffective.
