mergebad(1) merge multiple images into one


mergebad -i <mapfile><imagefile> -o <output_file> -l <mapfile> -s <size> -v -h


mergebad merges multiple images into one. This can be useful when you have, for example, multiple CDs with the same data which are all damaged. In such case, you can then first use recoverdm to retrieve the data from the damaged CDs into image files and then combine them into one image with mergebad.


-i <mapfile> <imagefile>
With -i one selects a mapfile+imagefile to read.
-o <output_file>
File to write output to.
-l <mapfile>
In case all input images had a bad block on the same place, this file will list those blocks.
-s <size>
Limit or extend the size of the output image.
Be verbose.
