img_cat(1)                                                          img_cat(1)




NAME

       img_cat - Output contents of an image file.


SYNOPSIS

       img_cat   [-i  imgtype]  [-b  dev_sector_size]  [-s  start_sector]  [-e
       stop_sector] [-vV] image [images]


DESCRIPTION

       img_cat outputs the contents of an image file.  Image  files  that  are
       not raw will have embedded data and metadata.  img_cat will output only
       the data.  This allows you to convert an embedded format to raw  or  to
       calculate  the  MD5 hash of the data by piping the output to the appro-
       priate tool.



ARGUMENTS

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

       -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.

       -s start_sector
              The sector number to start at.

       -e stop_sector
              The sector number to stop at.

       -v     Verbose output of debugging statements 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
              automatically.
