CDCAT(1)		    General Commands Manual		      CDCAT(1)

NAME
       cdcat - Copy data from one or more CD-ROMs to STDOUT.

SYNOPSIS
       cdcat  [	-d, --device=PATH ] [ -h, --help ] [ -p, --prefix=NAME ] [ -t,
       --test ]	[ -V, --version	]

OPTIONS
       -d, --device=PATH
	      Use the specified	CD-ROM device.	The default is /dev/cdrom.

       -h, --help
	      Show usage message and quit.

       -p, --prefix=NAME
	      Specify the filename prefix as used on the CD images.   The  de-
	      fault  value  ('')  normally works fine.	The first CD is	always
	      searched for files matching the shell pattern NAME*.  If	multi-
	      ple  matches  are	 found,	 the user is prompted to choose	one of
	      them.  If	the selected file ends with '.1', then the  backup  is
	      assumed to be multidisk.

       -t, --test
	      Do  not use the CD-ROM drive.  In	this mode, everything proceeds
	      normally,	except that the	backup files are searched for  in  the
	      current  directory, rather than on CD-ROMs.  The CD-ROM drive is
	      never actually mounted or	unmounted.

       -V, --version
	      Print the	version	number and exit.

DESCRIPTION
       This manual page	documents briefly the cdcat filesystem	restore	 util-
       ity.

       CDCat  concatenates  components of a filesystem backup from one or more
       CD-ROMs,	and writes its output to STDOUT.  It is	used as	an interactive
       front-end for cdrstr (1).
