I hate to say it, but rt*m - in this case, the man page. Then know
that the extended filesystem is (and has been for a while) obsolete
and that you are almost certainly using an extended 2 filesystem (the
"2" is very important!) In fact, if you could use tune2fs, then you
certainly are. edefrag is for extended filesystems - e2defrag is for
extended 2 filesystems.
