IMG_CAT(1)		    General Commands Manual		    IMG_CAT(1)

       img_cat - Output	contents of an image file.

       img_cat	 [-i  imgtype]	[-b  dev_sector_size]  [-s  start_sector]  [-e
       stop_sector] [-vV] image	[images]

       img_cat outputs the contents of an image	file.  Image  files  that  are
       not raw will have embedded data and metadata.  img_cat will output only
       the data.  This allows you to convert an	embedded format	to raw	or  to
       calculate  the  MD5 hash	of the data by piping the output to the	appro-
       priate tool.

       -i imgtype
	      Identify the type	of image file, such as raw or  aff.   Use  '-i
	      list'  to	list the supported types.  If not given, autodetection
	      methods are used.

       -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.

       -s start_sector
	      The sector number	to start at.

       -e stop_sector
	      The sector number	to stop	at.

       -v     Verbose output of	debugging statements 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
