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 is used. To
       force following symlinks, add a trailing  slash  to  the  path  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  device  match
       up, and there is no other command that can print the info easily.
