This only works if you have a single device, since the inode is not unique 
cross-device, only unique on a device

Subject: Re: [U2] Turn a device and inode into file name

I have a utility named FLIST.READU that replaces the inode from the
tandard LIST.READU output with the file name.  It uses "ls -i", so it's
imited to files in the account you run the command from, though.  Works
ine for us because all of our users work out of the same account.  This
s the relevant part of the code:
    EXECUTE 'SH -c "ls -i | grep ':INODE.NO:'"', OUT > FILENAME
    IF FILENAME<1,1,1> # '' THEN
      FILENAME = FIELD(TRIM(FILENAME<1,1,1>),' ',2) 'L#8'
It's also pretty resource intensive because it re-lists the entire
ccount for every inode.  Probably not much of an issue if your hardware
s fairly new.

ubject: [U2] Turn a device and inode into file name

nyone have an easy way to do this?
n the past I've run a batch routine to just query each and every
niverse file for it's inode and device and build a table of these
Every week....
eems like a great amount of overkill to me.
ou could also mod the CREATE-FILE command to sniff it and make an xref
ntry but ....
Any suggestions?
his is NOT for the case where you know the file and want to find the
node and device It's for the case where you know the inode and device
only) and want to find the file.
