Some people have asked for the locations of fhfind and showfh. Sorry for not
including them in the original summary.

fhfind is a script that runs on Solaris. I found it at I just copied and
pasted it into a file and made it executable. Usage is fhfind filehandle.

showfh is a binary and is ONLY available on SunOS. The exe is located in
/usr/etc - for this, you also need to start an rpc daemon called rpc.showfhd
and is also in /usr/etc. Usage is showfh localhost filehandle. There is a
man page available on SunOS.


> A good simple summary but where is fhfind? I've never used it so I'd

> I'd still like to look at it.
