SYNOPSISicat [-hrsvV] [-f fstype ] [-i imgtype ] [-o imgoffset ] [-b dev_sector_size] image [images] inode
DESCRIPTIONicat opens the named image(s) and copies the file with the specified inode number to standard output.
- -f fstype
- Specifies the file system type. Use '-f list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
- Skip over holes in sparse files, so that absolute address information is lost. This option saves space when copying sparse files.
- Use file recovery techniques if the file is deleted.
- Include the slack space in the output.
- -i imgtype
- Identify the type of image file, such as raw or split. Use '-i list' to list the supported types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
- -o imgoffset
- The sector offset where the file system starts in the image.
- -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.
- Enable verbose mode, output to stderr.
- Display version
- image [images]
- One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format is given with '-i'.
