dar_cp(1)                                                            dar_cp(1)




NAME

       dar_cp  - 'cp' clone command that is able to copy data located after an
       I/O error


SYNOPSIS

       dar_cp <source file> <destination file>

       dar_cp -h

       dar_cp -V


DESCRIPTION

       dar_cp is similar to the standard 'cp' command, except it does not stop
       copying  when  an I/O error is met. Instead, it skips a bit further and
       continues to copy the rest of the file, as much  as  possible,  filling
       the gaps by zeroed bytes.


       dar_cp only accepts full filename (not directory) as argument. The rea-
       son of its existence in dar package is that you  need  it  if  you  use
       Parchive  with  dar  and have a corruption on a CD-R or any other read-
       only medium. You need to copy  the  corrupted  slice  on  a  read-write
       filesystem,  for  Parchive  be able to repair it using slice associated
       redundancy files.

       2         could not open source or destination files

       3         any other system error met during the copy

       5         when some data could not be copied due to I/O error
