hi list,

how can a utility like **find** command  can map an inode number to a

 i mean if we pass **find -inum inode_number  / **   , it will show us the
 files associated with that "inode_number". What is the underlying mechanism
used in all this ?

 I have peeped into the findutils code but it seems horrible to figure it
out from that code .:)

thanks in advance.
