       COUNT] DISKIMAGE	[DSKIMAGE...]
DESCRIPTION
       Dskid is	a utility which	will identify how a disc (or image) is format-
       ted.  It	 reports the required driver and various information about the
       disc geometry.

OPTIONS
       -type TYPE
	      Determines which driver is to be used.

	      auto    Select according to the disc image file. This is the de-
		      fault.

	      dsk     Use the DSK (CPCEmu format) image	driver.

	      edsk    Use the extended version of the DSK format.

	      floppy  Use the floppy driver.

	      myz80   Use  the	hard  disk (MYZ80 format) image	driver.	 (This
		      format cannot be autodetected.)

	      cfi     Use the CFI (DOS fdcopy  format)	image  driver.	 (This
		      format cannot be autodetected.)

	      raw     Use the raw driver.

       -retry COUNT
	      Set  the	number of times	to attempt to read the disc in case of
	      error.

       -comp COMP
	      Select the compression method used on the	source disc image file
	      (has no effect when reading a floppy disc).

	      auto    Detect from the first few	bytes of the file. This	is the
		      default.

	      sq      Huffman coded (SQ	/ USQ).

	      gz      Gzipped (gzip / gunzip).

	      bz2     Burrows-Wheeler compressed (bzip2	/ bunzip2).

	      identified.
