       mkfs.bfs - make an SCO bfs filesystem

       mkfs.bfs [options] device [block-count]

       mkfs.bfs	 creates  an  SCO  bfs filesystem on a block device (usually a
       disk partition or a file accessed via the loop device).

       The block-count parameter is the desired size  of  the  filesystem,  in
       blocks.	If nothing is specified, the entire partition will be used.

       -N, --inodes number
	      Specify  the desired number of inodes (at most 512).  If nothing
	      is specified, some default number in the range 48-512 is	picked
	      depending on the size of the partition.

       -V, --vname label
	      Specify the volume label.	 I have no idea if/where this is used.

       -F, --fname name
	      Specify  the  filesystem	name.  I have no idea if/where this is

       -v, --verbose
	      Explain what is being done.

       -c     This option is silently ignored.

       -l     This option is silently ignored.

       -h, --help
	      Display help text and exit.

       -V, --version
	      Display version information and exit.  Option -V only  works  as
	      --version when it is the only option.

       The  exit code returned by mkfs.bfs is 0 when all went well, and 1 when
       something went wrong.


       The mkfs.bfs command is part of the util-linux package and is available
