NAME

mountpoint - see if a directory is a mountpoint 

SYNOPSIS

/bin/mountpoint[-q][-d]/path/to/directory
/bin/mountpoint-x/dev/device 

DESCRIPTION

Mountpoint checks if the directory is a mountpoint.

 

OPTIONS

-q
Be quiet - don't print anything.
-d
Print major/minor device number of the filesystem on stdout.
-x
Print major/minor device number of the blockdevice on stdout.
 

EXIT STATUS

Zero if the directory is a mountpoint, non-zero if not. 

NOTES

Symbolic links are not followed, except when the -x option isused. To force following symlinks, add a trailing slash to thepath of the directory.

The name of the command is misleading when the -x option is used,but the option is useful for comparing if a directory and a devicematch up, and there is no other command that can print the info easily.
