Name

lsbom

Synopsis

lsbom [options] bomfile

Prints the contents of a binary BOM ("bill of materials") file (bomfile) in human-readable format. By default, lsbom prints a line of information for each file listed in the BOM, as in this example:

./Documents/Install Log.txt 100664 0/80 1182 4086739704

This line shows, in order, the plain file's pathname, permissions (modes) in octal format, owner and GIDs, size, and checksum. When listing symbolic links, lsbom reports the size and checksum of the link itself, and also lists the pathname of the linked file. Device file listings include the device number, but not the file size or checksum.
