NAME

       mmcat - Output the contents of a partition to stdout


SYNOPSIS

       mmcat  [-t  mmtype  ]  [-o offset ] [ -i imgtype ] [-b dev_sector_size]
       [-vV] image [images] part_num


DESCRIPTION

       mmcat outputs the contents of a specific volume to stdout.  This allows
       you to extract the contents of a partition to a separate file.



ARGUMENTS

       -t mmtype
              Specify  the  media  management type.  Use '-t list' to list the
              supported types.  If not given, autodetection methods are  used.

       -o offset
              Specify  the  offset  into the image where the volume containing
              the partition system starts.  The relative offset of the  parti-
              tion system will be added to this value.

       -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.

       -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.

       -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.

       part_num
              Address of partition to process.  See the mmls output to  deter-
              mine the address of the partitions.
