RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for amdd (redhat section 8)

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

NAME
amdd - Amanda version of dd
SYNOPSIS
amdd [ -d ] [ if=input ] [ of=output ] [ bs=blocksize ] [ skip=count ] [ count=count ]
DESCRIPTION
Amdd provides just enough of the standard dd command for the needs of Amanda. This is handy when doing a full restore and the standard dd program has not yet been found. Amdd also provides access to the Amanda output drivers that support various tape simulations. This may be used for debugging or to convert from one format to another. See the amanda(8) man page for more details about Amanda. See the OUTPUT DRIVERS section of amanda(8) for more information on the Amanda output drivers.
OPTIONS
-d Turn on debugging output. -llength Set the output length. If the output driver limits the output size, this controls when end of tape will be simulated. Length may have a multiplier suffix: k 1024 (Kilobytes) b 512 (Blocks) M 1024*1024 (Megabytes) The default is no multipler (bytes). if=input Input to dd. Default is stdin. of=output Where to send the output of dd. Default is stdout. bs=blocksize Size of each record. Input records smaller than this will not be padded. Output records will be the same size as the corresponding input record. Default is 512 bytes. Blocksize may have a multiplier suffix: k 1024 (Kilobytes) b 512 (Blocks) M 1024*1024 (Megabytes) The default is no multipler (bytes). count=count Number of records to copy. Default is all records until end of file. skip=count Number of records to skip before copying input to output. Default is zero.
