Question mlabel command


Hi all,

i have a question about the mlabel command i was trying to re-label my flash drive and i manged to with the help of this command
mlabel -i /dev/sdc1 -s ::test

my question is what does the -i option means cause after i read the manual pages i couldn't find it there. mlabel only takes the "v" "s" "c" switches and no "i" and when I remove the -i option from the whole command don;t work and i can't re-label ... . its just driving me crazy that every one is using it and no tells what does it do .. .. can anyone please help me ,,, )

My mlabel man page points out an online version of their full documentation.

http://www.gnu.org/software/mtools/manual/mtools.html

Section 2.2 states that -i is an option common to all the mtools, used in combination with : to specify the drive or drive image being operated on.
