NAME

       afile  -  display  type  and creator of Apple Macintosh files (netatalk
       format)


SYNOPSIS

       afile [-a] file ...



DESCRIPTION

       afile displays the name and Macintosh type  and  creator  of  the  file
       arguments.  Tests  whether  the file is an AppleDouble header, in which
       case it checks the corresponding data fork exists, or assumes it  is  a
       data  fork  in which case it looks for the corresponding AppleDouble to
       find the type/creator information.

       afile does not look at any of  the  extension  mapping  files  such  as
       AppleVolumes.system.


OPTIONS

       -a     Include  directories and data files of unknown type (i.e.  with-
              out corresponding AppleDouble) in output.


DIAGNOSTICS

       returns exit status 0 if all files have a corresponding  valid  .Apple-
       Double header or data fork, or 99 for bad command line options.  Other-
       wise it returns the following error code relating to the  last  invalid
       file.
