       amiga-fdisk - Amiga disk partitioning program


       amiga-fdisk [ -l ] [ -v ] device


       amiga-fdisk  is  a  program to partition harddisks under Linux/m68k. It
       uses command line parameters similar to those of the PC fdisk  program,
       and  operates on the disk associated with device.  In interactive mode,
       it behaves similarly to the fdisk program.


       -l     List partition tables of all  disks.  If  this  flag  is  given,
              interactive mode isn’t entered.

       -v     Show version of the program.


       Many  of  the  command  line  options  known  from  fdisk have not been
       implemented yet.

       Using amiga-fdisk on large harddisks (like larger than 2  GB)  consumes
       lots  of  memory,  as the program currently tries to read in the entire
       RDB blocks - which can be several MB if the (reported) geometry of  the
       disk says so (the RDB occupies the first two cylinders of the disk).

       The  whole stuff about interactive usage of amiga-fdisk in this manpage
       still has to be written.
