ppddmchk - checks if a given file is on a given device
This program allows the rc.sysinit script to check if the root is on a
ppdd device. It is general purpose and could be used more widely.
The program works by checking if the inode for the file given as the
first argument is on the device given as the second.
It returns zero if the file is on the device. Else 1.
ppddmchk / /dev/ppdd0
The program returns 0 if the file is on the device.
The program returns 1 if not or if anything has gone wrong.
All ppdd utilities display fairly meaningful errors (mostly on stderr).
In all cases the errors have a unique error number to help locate the
problem in the source code. If an error message is not clear then best
source of explanation at this stage is the source itself.
The program does not use any environment variables.
Files (and devices) are specified as arguments.
