fcat [-hRsvV] [-f fstype] [-i imgtype] [-o imgoffset] [-b dev_sector_size] path_of_file image [images]
DESCRIPTIONfcat opens the named image(s) and copies the file at the path path_of_file to standard output.
- -f fstype
- Specifies the file system type. Use -f 'list' to list the supported file system types. If not given, autodetection methods are used.
- Skip over holes in sparse files, so that absolute address information is lost. This option saves space when copying sparse files.
- Suppress errors if a deleted file is being recovered.
- Include the slack space in the output.
- -i imgtype
- Identify the type of image file, such as raw. 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.
- Enable verbose mode, output to stderr.
- Display version
- image [images]
- The disk or partition image to read, whose format is given with '-i'. Multiple image file names can be given if the image is split into multiple segments. If only one image file is given, and its name is the first in a sequence (e.g., as indicated by ending in ’.001’), subsequent image segments will be included automatically.
- Path of file to extract the contents of. Surround the path in quotes if there is a space in a file or directory name. Use forward slashes.
