18 .TH MOUNTPOINT 1 "Mar 15, 2004" "" "Linux System Administrator's Manual"
19 .SH NAME
20 mountpoint \- see if a directory is a mountpoint
21 .SH SYNOPSIS
22 .B /bin/mountpoint
23 .RB [ \-q ]
24 .RB [ \-d ]
25 .I /path/to/directory
26 .br
27 .B /bin/mountpoint
28 .RB \-x
29 .I /dev/device
30 .SH DESCRIPTION
31 \fBMountpoint\fP checks if the directory is a mountpoint.
32
33 .SH OPTIONS
34 .IP \fB\-q\fP
35 Be quiet - don't print anything.
36 .IP \fB\-d\fP
37 Print major/minor device number of the filesystem on stdout.
38 .IP \fB\-x\fP
39 Print major/minor device number of the blockdevice on stdout.
40 .SH EXIT STATUS
41 Zero if the directory is a mountpoint, non-zero if not.
42 .SH NOTES
43 Symbolic links are not followed, except when the \fB-x\fP option is
44 used. To force following symlinks, add a trailing slash to the
45 path of the directory.
46 .PP
47 The name of the command is misleading when the -x option is used,
48 but the option is useful for comparing if a directory and a device
49 match up, and there is no other command that can print the info easily.
