GNU ddrescue is a data recovery tool. It copies data from one file or block device (hard disc, cdrom, etc) to another, trying to rescue the good parts first in case of read errors.

Ddrescuelog is a tool that manipulates ddrescue mapfiles, shows mapfile contents, converts mapfiles to/from other formats, compares mapfiles, tests rescue status, and can delete a mapfile if the rescue is done.

Changes in this version:

* The new option '-W, --compare-before-write' has been added. It omits superfluous writes in rescue mode.
(Suggested by Kajetan Harald Hinner and Petr Slansky).
