affcat − Output contents of an image file to stdout.

affcat[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 sector.

‐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 outputting

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

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

‐b   Output BADFALG for bad blocks (default is to output

‐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.
