fcat(1)                                                                fcat(1)


       fcat - Output the contents of a file based on its name.


       fcat  [-hRsvV]  [-f fstype ] [-i imgtype ] [-o imgoffset ] [-b dev_sec-
       tor_size] path_of_file image [images]


       fcat opens  the  named  image(s)  and  copies  the  file  at  the  path
       path_of_file to standard output.


       -f fstype
              Specifies  the file system type.  Use '-f list' to list the sup-
              ported file system types.  If not given,  autodetection  methods
              are used.

       -h     Skip over holes in sparse files, so that absolute address infor-
              mation is lost. This option  saves  space  when  copying  sparse

       -R     Supress errors if a deleted file is being recovered.

       -s     Include the slack space in the output.

       -i imgtype
              Identify  the type of image file, such as raw.  Use '-i list' to
              list the supported types.  If not given,  autodetection  methods
              are used.

       -o imgoffset
              The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.

       -b dev_sector_size
              The  size,  in  bytes, of the underlying device sectors.  If not
              given, the value in the image format is used (if it  exists)  or
              512-bytes is assumed.

       -v     Enable verbose mode, output to stderr.

       -V     Display version

       image [images]
              The  disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with
              '-i'.  Multiple image file names can be given if  the  image  is
              split  into multiple segments.  If only one image file is given,
              and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as  indicated  by
              ending  in  '.001'),  subsequent image segments will be included

              Path of file to extract the contents of.  Surround the  path  in
              quotes  if  there  is  a space in a file or directory name.  Use
              forward slashes.
