       blkls - List or output file system data units.


       blkls  [-aAelsvV]  [-f  fstype  ]  [-i  imgtype  ]  [-o imgoffset ] [-b
       dev_sector_size] image [images] [start-stop]


       blkls opens the named  image(s)  and  copies  file  system  data  units
       (blocks).   By  default,  blkls copies the contents of unallocated data
       blocks.  blkls was called dls in TSK versions prior  to  3.0.0.   blkls
       was called unrm in TCT.


       -e     Copy every block. The output should be similar to dd.

       -a     Display all allocated blocks (same as -e if -A is also given).

       -A     Display all unallocated blocks (same as -e if -a is also given).
              This is the default behavior.

       -f fstype
              Specifies the file system type.   Use  ’-f  list’  to  list  the
              supported  file  system  types.   If  not  given,  autodetection
              methods are used.

       -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.

       -l     List the data information in time machine format.

       -s     Copy only the slack space of the image.

       -v     Turn on verbose mode, output to stderr.

       -V     Display version.

       image [images]
              One (or more if split) disk or partition images whose format  is
              given with ’-i’.

       start-stop ...
              Examine the specified block number or number range.
