       img_cat - Output contents of an image file.


       img_cat [-i imgtype] [-b dev_sector_size] [-vV] image [images]


       img_cat  outputs  the  contents of an image file.  Image files that are
       not raw will have embedded data and metadata.  img_cat will output only
       the  metadata.  This allows you to convert an embedded format to raw or
       to calculate the MD5 hash of the data  by  piping  the  output  to  the
       appropriate tool.


       -i imgtype
              Identify  the  type  of  image file, such as raw, split, or aff.
              Use ’-i list’ to  list  the  supported  types.   If  not  given,
              autodetection methods are used.

       -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.

       -v     Verbose output of debugging statements to stderr

       -V     Display version

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