Package bmap-tools

Tools to generate and flash sparse images using the "block map" (bmap) format

Tools to generate "block map" (a.k.a. bmap) files and flash images. Bmaptool is
a generic tool for creating the block map (bmap) for a file, and copying files
using the block map. The idea is that large file containing unused blocks, like
raw system image files, can be copied or flashed a lot faster with bmaptool
than with traditional tools like "dd" or "cp". See for more information.
