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

Synopsis

bxcommit [options] [flat_filename] [redolog_filename]

Description

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.

Options

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.

-mode=commit-undoable
commit undoable redolog to flat file
-mode=growing-to-flat
create flat disk image from growing disk image
-mode=flat-to-growing
create growing disk image from flat disk image
-d
delete redolog file after commit
-q
quiet mode (don't prompt for user input)
--help
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.
