FCAT(1)			    General Commands Manual		       FCAT(1)

       fcat - Output the contents of a file based on its name.

       fcat  [-hRsvV]  [-f fstype ] [-i	imgtype	] [-o imgoffset	] [-b dev_sec-
       tor_size] path_of_file image [images]

       fcat 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 sup-
	      ported file system types.	 If not	given,	autodetection  methods
	      are used.

       -h     Skip over	holes in sparse	files, so that absolute	address	infor-
	      mation is	lost. This option  saves  space	 when  copying	sparse

       -R     Supress errors if	a deleted file is being	recovered.

       -s     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.

       -v     Enable verbose mode, output to stderr.

       -V     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

	      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.
