       lssf - list a special file

       special_file ...


       In  the	first  form, lists information about a special file.  For each
       special_file name, determines the major number of the special file  and
       whether	it  is	block or character (using It then scans the system for
       the device that is associated with the special file.  When  the	device
       is found, the minor number of the special file is decoded.

       A  mnemonic description of the minor number is printed on standard out‐
       put along with the hardware path	 (in  other  words,  address)  of  the
       device.	 Mnemonics  used to describe the fields are closely related to
       the options used with (see mksf(1M)).

       In the second form, displays the list of	 stale	device	special	 files
       present in selected directories under the directory.

       In the third form, executes a Critical Resource Analysis (CRA) on the
