     mkfile - create a file


     /etc/mkfile [-v] [-n] size[k|b|m|g] filename...


     mkfile creates one or more files.  The file is padded with zeroes by
     default.  The default size is in bytes, but it can be flagged as
     kilobytes, blocks, megabytes, or gigabytes with the k, b, m, or g
     suffixes, respectively.


     -v   Verbose.  Report the names and sizes of created files.

     -n   No bytes.  Create a holey file, that is, do not write out any data,
          just seek to end of file and write a block.  This is only supported
          on filesystems that supports such files, such as XFS.
