mmcat — Output the contents of a partition to stdout

Synopsis

mmcat [-t mmtype ] [-o offset ] [ -i imgtype ] [-b dev_sector_size] [-vV] image [images] part_num

Description

mmcat outputs the contents of a specific volume to stdout.  This allows you to extract the contents of a partition to a separate file.

Arguments

-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 partition 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.

-v

Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr

-V

Display version

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 automatically.

part_num

Address of partition to process.  See the mmls output to determine the address of the partitions.
