       affsegment - segment manipulation tool


       affsegment [options] file1.aff [file2.aff ...]


       This is a segment manipulation tool.

       This file is part of the AFFLIBv3, that provides AFF.

       AFF  is  an  open  and  extensible file format to store disk images and
       associated metadata. It is useful in  several  scenaries,  as  computer
       forensics investigations.



              -c     Create AFF files if they do not exist.

                     Sets the value of a segment; may be repeated.

                     Prints the contents of the segment name for each file.

              -V     Just print the version number and exit.

              -dname Delete segment 'name'.

              -h, -? Print this message.

              -Q     interpert 8-byte segments as a 64-bit value.

              -A     Print the 32-bit arg, not the segment value.

              -x     Print the segment as a hex string.

       Setting the segment values:

                     Take the new value of segment 'name' from stdin.

                     Sets segment 'name' to be 'val'.

                     Sets segment 'name' to be contents of file 'val'

       Setting the segment args:

                     Sets segment 'name' arg to be 'arg' (may be repeated).

       Setting both the segment value and the arg:

                     Sets    both    arg   and   val   for   segment   'name'.
                     -sname/arg=<file Sets the arg and take contents from file

                     Sets the arg of segment 'name' and take the contents from


       All deletions are done first, then all updates. Don't specify the  same
       segment twice on one command line.
