       mmls  -  Display  the  partition  layout of a volume system  (partition


       mmls [-t mmtype ] [-o offset ] [  -i  imgtype  ]  [-b  dev_sector_size]
       [-BrvV] [-aAmM] image [images]


       mmls  displays  the  layout of the partitions in a volume system, which
       include partition tables and disk labels.


       -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.

       -B     Include a column with the partition sizes in bytes

       -r     Recurse into DOS partitions and look for other partition tables.
              This  setup frequently occurs when Unix is installed on x86 sys-

       -v     Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr

       -V     Display version

       -a     Show allocated volumes

       -A     Show unallocated volumes

       -m     Show metadata volumes

       -M     Hide metadata volumes

       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

       'mmls'  is  similar  to  'fdisk  -lu'  in Linux with a few differences.
       Namely, it will show which sectors are not being used so that those can
       be searched for hidden data.  It also gives the length value so that it
       can be plugged into 'dd' more easily for extracting the partitions.  It
       also will show BSD disk labels for Free, Open, and NetBSD and will dis-
       play the output in sectors and not cylinders.  Lastly, it works on non-
       Linux systems.

       If  none  of  -a, -A, -m, or -M are given then all volume types will be
       listed.  If any of them are given, then only the types specified on the
       command line will be listed.

       Allocated volumes are those that are listed in a partition table in the
       volume system AND can store data.  Unallocated  volumes  are  virtually
       created  by mmls to show you which sectors have not been allocated to a
       volume.  The metadata volumes overlap  the  allocated  and  unallocated
       volumes  and  describe  where  the  partition tables and other metadata
       structures are located.  In some volume systems, these  structures  are
       in  allocated  space  and  in others they are in unallocated space.  In
       some volume systems, their location is explicitly given in  the  parti-
       tion tables and in others they are not.


       To list the partition table of a Windows system using autodetect:

       # mmls disk_image.dd

       To  list  the contents of a BSD system that starts in sector 12345 of a
       split image:

       # mmls -t bsd -o 12345 -i split disk-1.dd disk-2.dd
