Synopsis

int fstyp_ident(fstyp_handle_t handle, const char *fstyp,
     const char **ident);

Parameters

handle

Opaque handle returned by fstyp_init(3FSTYP).

fstype

Opaque argument that specifies the file system type to be identified.

ident

Description

The fstyp_ident() function attempts to identify a file system associated with the handle. If the function succeeds, the file system name is returned in the ident pointer.

If fstype is NULL, the fstyp_ident() function tries all available identification modules. If fstype is other than NULL, fstyp_ident() tries only the module for the file system type which is specified.

Return Values

The fstyp_ident() function returns 0 on success and an error value on failure. See fstyp_strerror(3FSTYP).
