       afcat - Output contents of an image file to stdout.


       afcat [options] image [images]


       affcat  outputs  the  contents of an image file to stdout.  Image files
       that are not raw but are recognized  by  AFF  will  be  output  in  raw
       format.  Missing  pages  will not be padded, but the fact that they are
       missing will be noted on STDERR.

       The options are as follows:

       -s name
              Output the named segment, instead of the image data. This  is  a
              way to output metadata.

       -p nnn Just output page number nnn

       -S nnn Just  output  data  sector  number  nnn.  Sector #0 is the first

       -q     Quiet mode. Don’t print to STDERR if a page is  skipped  because
              it is not present.

       -n     Noisy mode. Tell when pages are skipped.

       -l     List all the segment names, rather than outputing data.

       -L     List Long. Prints segment names, lengths, and args.

       -d     Debug  mode.  Print  the  page numbers to stderr as data goes to

       -b     Output BADFALG for bad blocks (default is to output NULLs).

       -v     Just print the version number and exit.

       -r offset:count
              Seek to the given byte offset and  output  count  characters  in
              each file; may be repeated.


       afcat first appeared in AFFLIB v1.00.
