       invcutter - generate subset inventory files

       /usr/sys/dist/invcutter [ -d ] [ -f root-path ] [ -f version-code ]

       The command reads master inventory records from standard input.	A sub‐
       set inventory record is written to standard  output  for	 every	record
       read  from the input. The information contained in the output record is
       derived from the input record and the file attribute information in the
       file hierarchy rooted in the current directory.

       -d		   Enable   debugging.	 No   useful  diagnostics  are

       -f root-path	   Specify an alternate root  path  for	 finding  file
			   attribute information.

       -v version-code	   Specify  a 3-digit version code for use in the ver‐
			   sion field of the output records. The default  ver‐
			   sion code is 010.

       All  input  records  must  be sorted in ascending order on the pathname

       Files described in an input record which exist as sockets in  the  file
       hierarchy are not processable.

       If a file is described in an input record has a link count greater than
       1, all other links to the file must be represented in the input.

       The following command will generate inventory records  for  the	master
       inventory entries in PDS020.mi containing version fields set to 020:
	   invcutter -v 020 < PDS020.mi

Return Values
       An  exit	 status of 0 is returned if all goes well. An exit status of 1
       is returned if an error occurs. See Diagnostics.

       "cannot chdir to pathname (error-message)"
       The program cannot change directories to the pathname directory	speci‐
       fied  with  the	-f  option.  The error-message will provide additional

       "sort error, record #n"
       The nth input record is not  in	the  correct  sort  order.  All	 input
       records	must  be  in ascending ASCII colating sequence on the pathname

       "cannot stat filename (error-message)"
       An error has occurred attempting to read the  attributes	 of  filename.
       The error-message explains exactly what happened.

       "pathname: illegal file type code 0140000"
       The  file pathname is a socket. Sockets are not supported as valid file
       types for distribution.

       "unresolved nlink n: pathname"
       This indicates that file pathname in the master inventory is linked  to
       n  files	 which	do not appear in the master inventory. Check inventory
       for validity with the program.

       "n unresolved hard links"
       This is an informational message stating how many files	were  detected
       in the input inventory which had unresolved links.
