pathchk: Check file name validity and portability
pathchk checks validity and portability of file names. Synopsis:
pathchk [option]… name…
pathchk prints an error message if any of
these conditions is true:
namedoes not have search (execute) permission,
nameis larger than the maximum supported by the operating system.
nameis longer than its file system’s maximum.
name is not an error, so long a file with that
name could be created under the above conditions.
The program accepts the following options. Also see Common options. Options must precede operands.
Instead of performing checks based on the underlying file system, print an error message if any of these conditions is true:
-’, and ‘
Print an error message if a file name is empty, or if it contains a component
that begins with ‘
Print an error message if a file name is not portable to all POSIX
hosts. This option is equivalent to ‘
0 if all specified file names passed all checks, 1 otherwise.
