bxcommit — Interactive Tool to Commit Redologs into flat Disk Images for Bochs


bxcommit [options] [flat_filename] [redolog_filename]


Bxcommit is an easy to use console based tool for committing redologs into flat disk images, particularly for use with Bochs. It is completely interactive if no command line arguments are used. It can be switched to a non-interactive mode if all required parameters are given in the command line.


When you run bxcommit without one of the following options, it will appear in interactive mode and ask for all required parameters to do the commit.

commit undoable redolog to flat file
create flat disk image from growing disk image
create growing disk image from flat disk image
delete redolog file after commit
quiet mode (don't prompt for user input)
display this help and exit

The first filename parameter specifies the name of the flat image that will be created or modified. The second one specifies the name of the redolog.
