FRAGISO(8)		    System Manager's Manual		    FRAGISO(8)

NAME
       fragiso	-  split rpm packages from an iso and reassemble the iso later
       on

SYNOPSIS
       fragiso make iso	fiso
       fragiso list fiso
       fragiso fill [-m] fiso iso

DESCRIPTION
       fragiso can be used to convert an iso file into a fragment file,	 which
       is  a  list describing all of the rpms on the iso and a data chunk con-
       taining everything but the rpms.	It is used by  drpmsync	 when  an  iso
       needs to	be transferred.	The idea is that often the rpms	on the iso are
       already available on the	destination host, so  it  saves	 bandwidth  to
       first  transfer	the  fragmented	 iso, copy the locally available rpms,
       transfer	the unavailable	rpms and reassemble the	iso file.

       fragiso make converts the iso into the fragment iso, fragiso  list  can
       be  used	 to  extract the rpm information. This information consists of
       the offset and length of	all rpms and the lead/signature	header	md5sum
       plus  the  header/payload md5sum. To reassemble the iso one has to copy
       the rpms	at the right offset into a new file and	then use fragiso  fill
       later  on  to provide all data not contained in the rpms. The -m	option
       tells fragiso to	print the resulting md5sum of the iso to  stdout.   It
       can be used for verification purposes.
