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.
